@Linux4Everyone Well according to one of the framework laptop forum moderators, they are required to do this to get an OEM discount for windows licenses: https://community.frame.work/t/ordered-a-batch-one-alder-lake-diy-request-to-get-rid-of-windows-key/18916/5
@Linux4Everyone you got Dev one?
I'm not sure I'd give my own money for one. I had dealt with hp biz-grade hardware and... It wasn't great. I've also dealt with Dell a lot recently, but only as a user. And not in a laptop capacity, but as a workstation. Seems better but still not great. I still going ThinkPad in high regard, but i haven't had one for a while, so i can't say.
Personally rocking a tuxedo, i feel it's better then the Dell crap I have from work, largely because Windows though.
@Linux4Everyone IMHO, OEMs should stop using the windows logo. Maybe a symbol that both OSes could use.
