Exactly. Why should I have to pay Microsoft when I don't use their stuff, and find their business practices (and products) appalling?

Sure, I have a few Windows computers, but they are valid OEM licenses. Most computers I have, though, are various flavours of Linux. Why pay a "Microsoft tax" for something Microsoft has in no way contributed to?
