“The sale of a computer equipped with pre-installed software isn’t an unfair commercial practice because most customers prefer to buy a laptop they can use straight away, Europeâ€™s top court has ruled in a victory for Sony.

See Sony wins battle over preinstalled Windows in Europeâ€™s top courtThe endless loop is one of the big mistakes a computer-programmer can make. So can courts. Ignoring the fact that monopoly distorts markets leads to the view that monopoly is normal… Repeat ad nauseum…
