Well, it should have, because that's what manufacturers of operating
systems, washing machines, and so on, are supposed to do. And so says
the legal system. Attempting to subvert market economics like that is

supplier will ever sell you cow meat again if you also sell vegetables
in your totally independent restaurant.
