Sounds like some folks are thinking that Microsoft can "fix" the problem of what is installed on a new pc.
*if* they tried to they would wind up in court over it. remember a tiny little thing where the government said that Microsoft was a MONOPLOY ?
it would not take much for a second round if a bunch of pc makers got ticked off.
and I can not even imagine the legal hassles of trying to write the contracts to sell windows to the OEM at different prices depending on what they install on the pc the way one post here worded it.
the OEM says they will sell 1 million systems and they get a price for that lot. the OEM will not even have an exact list of pre-load software when they make that deal.
and then there is also the cost for Microsoft to monitor and enforce such terms of the contract.
the basic legal and economics of the idea is not possible for Microsoft to ever want to get into.
the only real "fix" is if you do not want the pre-loaded stuff then do not buy that machine. if enough folks ask the OEM's for a clean install of windows and they sell less of the shovelware boxes they will respond.
until that happens they will keep doing what they do.
