Personally, I think the importance of windows refund reach far beyond 
the scope of "using Linux without paying the Microsoft tax". I wrote 
about it in my blog (http://blog.shemesh.biz/?p=568), but the gist of it 
is this:
The entire validity of a EULA hangs on the article in it Zvi used - 
without it, there is no informed consent to the EULA and the entire 
agreement is null and void. This means that them resisting the refund is 
actually a good thing. What you need to sue them for is for not letting 
you move your copy of vista to a new computer, and use their refusal to 
give refunds as the proof that you did not accept the agreement, and are 
therefor not bound by it.
