Apple If you have Apple's QuickTime media player and/or iTunes installed on your Windows machine, you might want to keep an eye on apple's Software Update tool. Apple is once again using the update tool to push unwanted software onto users' machines without asking for permission.

I really don't see why people complain about that so much. They also install Notepad but no lawsuits have been made over that. Would you really buy (or download if it is free) an operating system if it started with bare minimum?

For example, you are going to need IE even if you only plan on using Firefox. Why don't you try to download an installation file without an internet browser. It can be done, but it isn't exactly easy.

Personally, I don't think that there is anything wrong with Windows having MS software pre-installed, or OS-X having Apple software pre-installed.
