Very true PCNetSpec! :D Reminds me of my Windows days. Sometimes even Ctrl +ALT+ Del wouldn't work and I had to switch off my whole system by pulling out the power cord. Have never faced this issue with Linux

In Windows 98, Ctl+Alt+Del never worked for me.  I always had to do the hard reboot. ::)

I find this particularly funny, because I just bought my wife a HP business-class machine (winders 7 pro pre-installed).

There wasn't one, single piece of cruft installed on this business computer - just the facts ma'am  !!!

The last time I bought a winders machine - a Toshiba laptop @ Best Buy - their service department offered remove the cruft for USD $30.  I told them to bite me...

Long_story_short:  It took me 2 days to remove the cruft.   BTW, you can't get rid of the cruft by reinstalling a 'fresh version' of winders.  The recovery disk contains the same cruft, so you're reinstalling the bloatware too.  :'(

I found out, sometime later, that Toshiba installs the largest amount of cruft of any OEM.  They actually make more money off the bloatware, than they do the sale of the computer.

I *guess* the trick with winders machines is to buy business-class models only - install Peppermint - or suffer the consequences...   ::)

Some stores install Windows on non-Windows laptops really cheap and even provide a recovery disk (without bloatware)

I don't know why I find this amusing... it just tickled me ..

before I get accused of something, it didn't tickle me in a " tech support is a male preserve" way, more in a "Wow, geek is now chic" way....

Truth be told, the only computers I buy these days are 'refurbs', then I retro-fit them to suit myself.

My Peppermint 5 'road warrior' laptop is a top_of_the_line Dell Latitude ATG D630.  It has almost every conceivable option available from Dell, at the time. The original price was USD $4200-ish.  I bought it on Fleabay, added a second 9-cell Dell battery (15-cell dual-battery config now), a SanDisk SSD, 4GB RAM, and switched out the WiFi module for the one I prefer.   I have USD $300-ish invested in it.  LoL

My wife's 'new' machine is a HP 6005 Pro SFF.  It was originally USD $1000-ish.  It was recertified by a Microsoft vendor, appears new, and came with 64-bit winders 7 pro pre-installed, and no bloatware.  I have USD $190 invested in it - 30-day, no_questions_asked money-back guarantee from Fry's Electronics, and 1-year warranty from the MS vendor.

Personally, I don't foresee ever buying another new computer from a retailer.

The sweet spot is to stay behind the curve - buy the best machine you can find (based on long-term reviews)  - and install Peppermint, of course.

It doesn't get any better than that, IMO...   8)

Hey if we give it the "flat" look, maybe we could call it Peppermint Patty.  <--- I guess this could also be taken the wrong way :'(

I'm pretty sure a Peppermint fork would melt  ???

Okay, those were bad I know.....  :-X

Or we could really bloat it with top-end software and call it Peppermint Pam.  :D

BTW, you can't get rid of the cruft by reinstalling a 'fresh version' of winders.  The recovery disk contains the same cruft, so you're reinstalling the bloatware too.  :'(

I think by "fresh copy," they mean an actual Microsoft installation disc, not recovery media.  The disc in the picture has a Windows logo on it, indicating it's an official installation disc.  That's the only way to get a bloatware free version.  (other than the crap MS puts on by default, such as Windows Media Center, etc. that you can't truly get rid of)

Yeah, but that's not something the manufacturer put on there, that's Microsoft going all Nazi on your system.  I was just talking about standard bloatware that the manufacturer puts on there, not that happy horse crap.  That garbage is a whole new level of messed up.
