Amazon has reportedly partially-refunded a man for his PlayStation 3 purchase after he claimed that the removal of the option to have Linux on the console rendered it not fit for purpose.
Amazon refunded it, not Sony. Probably because of the EULA.
Linux is not why a person buys a PS3. I don't doubt the guy is a fanboy who bought the PS3 just to call Amazon and start yelling about it not having linux. A place like Amazon would definitely refund a new purchase of a PS3 without a second thought for a positive customer experience. For Amazon it has nothing to do with the reason they want to return the product. They just want to customer to stop yelling.
