So if for some reason you didn't hear I've been trying to return the
WindowsXP Home license that came with my new alienware notebook.
Plot details, background info and computer configuration howto @

Well the end is here.  After only 9 days of emails and phonecalls, I've
settled up with Alienware and I'm calling it a draw.

Thier legal department has decided that they will *not* be allowing me
to return the OS, and that decision is final save I hire a lawyer and
take it to court.
However, the "Critical issues department" of Alienware offered up 75$
worth of gift certificates from Amazon to settle this issue.

So in summary, I'm stuck with this license, and 75 dollars of gift
certificates.  I'd call that a draw.
