An alternative may be to sell one's unwanted Microsoft license
certificate to a third party.

        Microsoft's ability to sell a whole new operating system with
        every PC that ships, and to block the growth of a
        secondary/secondhand OS market, has been checked slightly - in
        Germany. A German appeal court has ruled that Microsoft can't
        stop dealers selling software it intends should ship only with
        new PCs separately. [...]

I recall reading in some other story (which I can't find right now)
that some german store was offering $50-$70 for a valid second-hand
license to the OS.
