Just goes to show....
Every place I've worked; the SOP has been to flush the pre-installed OS image & re-install.
But these days consumer PC/Laptops etc you don't even have that option; You only get the OEM's rebuild partition
Not so much of an issue for me, most everything I buy (except fondleSlab & phones) get re-imaged with Debian. Maybe MS could do something nice like say .... "Our OS must be installed from OUR media by the END USER"; Won't work of course ... The pubic outrage would be enormous.
. Sony are out due to rootkit
. Samsung are out due to ad injection & voyeuring via your TV
. LG are out due to phoning home all your media watching habbits
. Lenovo are out for on purpose pre-installed scumware.
Who else have I forgotten off my shitlist?
Could it really be that Apple is the last honest platform standing?
Shit; I need off this rock, like right now.
