Got spam from Dell this morning, about their new lineup of small business laptops and workstations:
Customers said they hated trialware, so we took it away. Vostro systems come without annoying trialware pre-installed. You only get the software you want.
Really? This is an advertisable feature and not a standard?
The amount of useless crap that comes with OS X systems has thankfully been kept to a minimum -- and you can just uncheck any that is there during install.
Poor Windows OEM carriers.
