It's about damned time someone came up with an idea like this: http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/
I see that Apple is now even mocking Windows for coming pre-loaded with all sorts of crap from the OEM's: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EbCyibkNB0

I understand *why* the OEM's crapify a PC . . . they are trying to maximize profit on each PC sold since it has become nearly impossible to actually make money on the hardware . . . but the whole out of box Windows experience has become just horrible - to the point where the first thing I do for friends and family who ask me to help with their PC performance is to simply backup their data, wipe the box and re-install . . . that is of course assuming they got a valid Windows CD with their PC which many often do NOT (they simply get the option to create DVD restore images that restore the system back to a pre-crapified state).

 Sigh . . .
