Can hardly understand your post, but I *THINK* you're asking:

"Are there any computer manufactures that sell hardware, without Windows pre-loaded?"

The answer is yes, many. Google can help you find one that fits what you want to do.

No, HP/UX is only for RISC processors, not PC's.

No-one is making fun of you.....The fact is that you ARE hard to understand. But bear with us---we know that English as a second language can be intimidating.

I'm not sure what you are saying about HP---they sell several laptops with Linux or FreeDos---no Windows.

Oddly enough, I understand much of what you are writing.

There are many hardware companies (like laptop vendors or manufacturers) who will NOT sell you a machine without MS Win on it. Many will not sell you a machine with NO operating system either.

And then, there are some (maybe many) who WILL sell you a machine without MS Win. You need to call and shop around.

You say you are taking classes to learn better English? And you think you are giving the instructor a headache??

Well, if you can joke about it all in good fun, that's a good attitude! Keep at it, you'll get better!

Very interesing! Though it does create your posts in a similar way that translation tools sometimes do, for non-English speakers. It's understandable, just a little bit mixed up

PS - for bold text use square brackets: [b]

Indeed, we can't always get the right item for the job; if you can take something that isn't quite right, and fix it to do the job you need, more power to you!

Kind regards,
Sasha

You can buy a computer from HP with a real Unix on it it has HP-UX but it will cost more than an PC version. I assemble my own servers abd desktops, and I buy my laptop/notebooks from Canada so non have Microsoft Windows pre-installed.

Dell sells laptops with Linux pre-installed. You can always install whatever you want in the machine you get, to replace Windows!

Some companies do, but not very many, because they are locked into contracts with Microsoft, and therefore, are bound by contract to promote Windows, and to include it installed on the machines they sell.

This is what "Authorized Microsoft Retailer" means.
