Yeah, right. My father uses some version or another of Windows XP. He
had to pay $39 for a full year's support just to email a human that
would help him configure his HP printer. That is on top of the $$$ for
the OS. Windows (I don't know about Mac) comes with installation
support free, and no more. Much like a crack dealer.

I just looked, and it seems that the price has since gone up 50%:
