+ - Dell to let users opt out of bloatware->

Submitted by

jimbojw writes "Computerworld UK is reporting that Dell now allows buyers to opt out of bloatware, stating "Dell has agreed to give buyers of certain PC models the option to avoid pre-installed software. Buyers of Dimension desktops, Inspiron notebooks and XPS PCs can now click a field in Dell's online order form that will block the installation of productivity software, ISP software, and photo and music software." For Windows users, this could represent a significant time-savings as now the infamous post-boot uninstall marathon may be obsolete. The effect this will have on trendy Mac commercials has yet to be seen."
