Such a pity we cannot mod you down Thom....
People are not complaining that windows has little preinstalled, compared to linux.
They are complaining of a few things;
1: Limited choice of installed applications
2: Nothing "useful" installed by defauls
3: System bloat
Lets look at point 3
Windows 98 basic install, you get Wordpad, notpad, media player, ie, solitaire..... approx 100mb
Windows ME same basic install..... approx 400mb
Windows XP, yepl exactly the same stuff.... roughly 1GB
Windows Vista..... 4gb for the equivilent of 100mb ?
Now, I will restate,
KEEP IT BASIC AND INSTALL THE MISSING PARTS YOURSELF
