Not to be a spoil sport but, I don't think so.
"If you have a genuine complaint about faulty goods, you can ignore
shop notices such as 'No Refunds' or 'No Exchanges'."
"You have no rights under the Sale of Goods Act if you
simply change your mind about wanting the goods."
I don't think it not working in linux makes it faulty. Unless of course
it says on the box "Linux compatible". So if it works in
(presumably) windows/os9.0 then you really have no argument unless you
were told it worked in linux.
Your having opened it or not in this case is entirely irrelevant as
they've sold youa a perfectly good product. Most retailers do offer at
least what dixons do and many offer a couple of weeks even if it's opened,
but you can understand from there point of view, if it's no longer salable
and they can't return it to the manufacturer (w/out a charge anyway) as
it's not faulty, then they'd be kind of stuck with it.
