This comment by PeteC2 See Profile directed at me certainly gave me a chuckle when reading this topic.

»Re: New very cheap Dell laptop which software to remove
said by PeteC2:

said by norwegian:

If it isn't related to hardware, it's added crap.

Huh? Then why not just have a CPU, PSU, SSD, and an alpha-numeric based OS? Real fast...real worthless

Hardware exists so that software can come to life.

The fact is, the "value" of any given piece of software is in the eyes of the user, eh?

OP: If you use it, it ain't "crap"; If you don't use it, it is...simple as that.

Thanks pete, and hope you see the humor in the cross posting too.

I tried to use that theory with the wife on the amount of shoes in the closet..should have kept my mouth shut.. she bought two more pairs the other day and threw out my Garfield slippers.
Crap !

You would never win an argument like that!

Telling users that all those added toolbars can cause just as much a headache than they are worth can be like hitting your head against a wall....some people will just not listen to good advice.

Would have been better had it been written recently, with Win7. Not that the results would have been much different, but...

Even though the date appears to be 2010..I am sure that is a mistake and should be 2012 since Roger just today put it out on his twitter... and if you look at the responses that are all 2012....so what OS do you think that is...see any clues ? I thought it was winxp myself.

From the article, emphasis mine:

So, today I decided to start with a fresh installation of Windows Vista, then download the top 20 most popular downloads from Download.com, install them without opting out of the bundled software. This is how your Internet Explorer will look like:
