Dell on Bloatware
According to PC World, "Dell Inc. is allowing its customers to decline the unwanted software applications loaded on new PCs, after hundreds of users complained about such "bloatware" on a company blog." On certain PC's when you order online, you must find and check the box that will "block the installation of productivity software, ISP (Internet service provider) software, and photo and music software." Well, that is one step in the right direction. But it will have to be on high end machines, because all that software pays for the cheapest PC's and laptops.
