Which wasn't what I was referring to. I was suggesting demanding refunds when the OEM didn't provide proper documentation.

I've known vendors to blanket refuse to issue RMAs on the grounds that
the customer should have known what they were purchasing (not in the
secure boot case but relating to other hardware features that are
problematic for some OSs).

I suspect that the law would say otherwise, especially if the fact that the board would only boot an OS from Microsoft wasn't properly documented in a way that a consumer could easily learn this before buying. Just because the vendor isn't willing to RMA doesn't always mean that the law is on their side, you know.
