I asked a company if they could sell me a PC without an installed Operating System, as I plan to install my own. Their response was that "We have to legally include a OS with all of our systems. So we include Windows 10." It surprised me that this would be a legal issue rather than a company policy.
The company is based in Utah. Is this an actual legal requirement by law? Why? Could it be to protect consumers? Would it protect the company from liability? Is it likely part of a contract they are in? Or is this a misunderstanding by customer service?
I didn't find anything with a cursory web search. (I am a new poster, so any critiques of my question are welcome.)
