    Users Want Windows 10 to Be Bloatware-Free


    It's a well-known fact that many OEMs and retailers across the world are shipping Windows computers, no matter the OS version installed, with lots of useless software solutions that do nothing more than to slow down the PCs themselves and to create additional issues.

    Anti-virus apps, word processors, toolbars, and other additional software tools that aren't specifically requested by users are all installed on these computers, so it takes time and effort for users to remove them completely.

    And yet, this has to end in Windows 10, users claim in a new suggestion on UserVoice, as Microsoft needs to work with OEMs to avoid installing unnecessary software on computers powered by this new operating system.

    News flash: Users want something that costs lots of money at no cost without any obligations to help defray those costs.

    What will users think of next?

    Your logic escapes me, if I spend $500 - $1000 on an unit with windows installed, means that I have already paid a premium price for that machine. Fine charge me $10 more to allow it to be bloat free.

    The biggest problem with bloatware is that you are never certain what is actually needed to run your system. Some are obvious amazon.com links, etc. But some are not, I personally get a headache trying to figure what half of the stuff is. I have special software to disable and totally remove McAfee tools (I don't want it).

    At the very least they should allow an option of standard or custom install, so you can pick and choose.

    It reminds me of DVD rentals, originally there were no previews, then they would have 1 or 2 previews, now it is up 10-12 previews, just to watch the stupid movie, even at theater's the previews last longer than the actual movie. Give me a break.

    It would be nice if there was no bloatware on any OS, but that is not going happen. The best way to get rid of it, is to use a program like Pc DeCrapifier. Try it, you'll like it!

    First, the point was that they were asking MS to prevent OEM's from bundling crapware on any system, not just premium ones.

    Second, it's really between you and your OEM, not Microsoft. OEM's use this crapware as a way to defray costs to sell you systems cheaper. If you can negotiate with them for a way to get that system without the crapware by paying more, that's up to you and them.

    Otherwise, vote with your wallet and don't buy from vendors who sell you systems with crapware.

    . . .You would think folks could figure that out without having to complain about it. . .

    I would personally just add another 100u.s. for another oem copy of what ever os I wanted and scrub the darn thing after a year once the warrantee is expired for the hardware

    That would take for granted there was no activation key for the factory machine.
    If you would be smart don't buy a machine without a obvious activation key

As I'm sure you're all aware, Asus (and others) love to fill up their laptop harddrives with bloatware and junk. My question is simple - when I get the upgrade to windows 10, will it automatically get rid of all that rubbish ? Thanks.
