Microsoft's "Windows Tax" comes under legal fire in Europe.

Italian consumer group ADUC (Associazion per i diritti degli utenti e consumatori) has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft, claiming that the process for allowing users to claim a refund for unwanted Windows licenses is too difficult.

OEMs don't escape either [Google Translate]:

We also believe that, although not the hardware manufacturer innocent, the main responsible of the failure is Microsoft itself, which uses its strong position in the market to promote their products in an unlawful manner, to the detriment of users and competition.

The ADUC is calling on those who have been lumbered with unwanted Windows licenses to jump on the lawsuit.
