[linux-5] Refunding Windows 7 Starter tax/charge in Singapore

Hello all,

I just bought an Acer Aspire One D270 from IT show 2012 Singapore. As usual, it came with Windows 7 Starter Edition. Now I have heard that in US and UK people actually managed to refund some amount towards their unused Windows copies. I am gonna run Fedora LXDE on my new netbook; just like on this Dell D610 I am using now to write this email.

Now the question is,  such thing even possible here in Pro Microsoft Singapore? I made sure they didnt start the windows on my computer or install any utilities as I forbid them from opening the sealed package before handing over to me, So when I booted, it started with Language Selection for windows 7 starter installer, which I promptly interrupted by turning the computer back off. I haven't accepted any EULA as I havent  gone any far on the Windows 7 Starter installer. I am prepared to ¨Reject"instead of Accept, when eventually the EULA comes up.

So any heads up on how to go about this will be really great.

Thanks
Ronnie
