Manufacturer specific "features" - sorry - bloatware

Try this:

As part of the agreement with Google, Amazon, etc., make it mandatory to offer a choice of a plain vanilla instal, or a manufacturer-specific install, complete with all those wonderful and oh, so desirable "features" (the sort of stuff so many of us thick, knuckle dragging IT types who know nothing of marketing might call bloat)

Obviously, the world plus dog would opt for the contaminated version but at least there would be some semblance of choice.
