Hardware, Embedded Systems The news I've seen coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show this year isn't particularly breathtaking or awe-inspiring. Phones, tablets, faster, thinner, yes, yes, we've all been here before. There is one piece of news, however, that stands out from the crowd. The best-selling TV maker in the US, Vizio, is entering the PC market. Stunning designs for both laptop and all-in-one - and buried deep within the press release lies the creamy nougaty centre that makes me want to buy one even more: a Windows 7 install optimised by Microsoft, free of crapware.

It is probably a "clean-looking" system image.

A non-vendor base Microsoft install should be the "cleanest" in terms of less bloat than any that include additional processes and vendor applications or even themes.

For Microsoft to stamp this release as more optimized than their standard would IMO, cause question as to why they would not optimize their installs by default.
