Microsoft We all know that Microsoft doesn't actually make computers. It makes the software, and then lets an almost infinite amount of manufacturers build computers that can run its software. These manufacturers often make a mess of things, delivering computers filled to the brim with crapware. What would happen if Microsoft made computers? Well, for one, they would be void of crapware. Two, they would help users install the software they want before leaving the store - including software from competitors.

I wholeheartedly applaud MS on the idea of crapware-free Windows PCs. This is a true service. In the meantime, PC Pro has an article comparing amounts of crapware on laptops from 10 OEMs and review of three crapware removal options: http://www.pcpro.co.uk/features/352927/the-crapware-con
