I wondered about that too, but I don't think it would fly.  Their
defence could simply be "It works with our PCs (Windows/OS X)" and that
the customer should have checked compatibility (IIRC they have
disclaimers about this).  Some companies do swap inappropriately
purchased items (e.g. maybe an IDE cable for a SATA one) as a gesture of
goodwill but from memory they are under no legal obligation to do so.

Unless, of course, you asked them directly if it would work with
GNU/Linux, it claims to or says "Universal".

It would be awesome if you could do it though.  Have a "day of action".
Everyone marches into (target of choice), buys anything, finds out it
doesn't work and returns it next day.
