I think it's around 3 to 5%, nothing to scoff at but negligible considering that, well, you do need an OS, hardly anyone's using a free one, and even the people who are sometimes end up needing a mainstream one. The tiny minority who complain about the fact that they can't get a machine without an OS doesn't seem to be very aware of the fact that they wouldn't get a whole lot off the for leaving the OS out even if there were some reason for the OEMs to offer that option.
