Look, I bet you $100 that, come the fall, you will NOT be able to walk into BestBuy and buy a computer with Windows 8 and a DVD drive that will not have DVD playing capabilities.
Eh, I don't dispute that at all.
You need to re-read my first in this thread:
Wasn't it once Microsoft's goal to reduce the amount of pre-installed bloatware? And now you need again pre-installed crapola to play a DVD?
I am pretty sure OEMs will load up their crapware to play DVDs.. but you know,THIS ISN'T AN IMPROVEMENT compared to Win7! What's really retarded is that WMP lost the ability to play DVDs even if the codecs are installed (just why?). So even "good" OEMs can't just load up the codecs, no they are basically forced to shovel a craplet player on the PC.
Speaking about schizophrenic company messages:
Many new PCs come filled with lots of trialware and sample software that slows your computer down—removing all that is a pain, so we do it for you! Every PC the Microsoft Store sells is put on a software diet and performance is tuned to run the best it can. We call this process Microsoft Signature.
