    To be honest, I've never really seen the problem with not being able to remove stuff; it's never stopped me using FireFox, or QuickTime or anything else.

    But good luck with the PyStar stuff; anything that helps them is all good in my opinion.

    You cant remove it.  You can make those things the default, yet you cant uninstall.  They are always there.   This is called bundling not preconfiguring.  Here is an example, with PC/OS OpenServer system I recommend Darwin Streaming Server.  I have a christian radio station in Asheville NC that uses PC/OS for streaming their podcasts and video files, they also use a bible reader and whatever else.  They also use a Java media player on their desktops and Firefox 3.  They can completely remove mplayer and VLC, they can completely remove Flock and they can completely remove Darwin Streaming Server so that the only thing on the system is what you want.  You cant do that with Windows.

    Can't remove what from windows exactly? the only thing on that list that comes bundled with windows is windows media player.. and you can uninstall it, and microsoft even made special versions of windows (due to enforcement of "law"), where it isn't bundled by default, and 'nobody' bought it..

    What you cant uninstall from Windows:

    Internet Explorer
    Windows Photo Gallery
    Windows Calendar
    Windows Mail
    Windows Vista Search
    Windows Media Player

    You can disable them and choose other apps but you cant remove them completely.  Thats where Microsoft catches so much flac.

    What you say doesnt matter.  I sent my cease and desist to Psystar this morning, Im confident the P, drop the C, OS option will be removed by morning time.  Dont go away mad rj, just go away.  Your involvement in GNU/Linux is unwanted and unwelcome.  Your distro is unwanted and unwelcome.

    BTW still waiting for proof that Brian would let you talk on behalf of a community you have no connection with. Oh and your mythical patents would be funny too.

    Hate to bring up this thread again, but still waiting to hear the success story that Corna has with removing PC/OS from Psystars website.  Looks like I can still purchase it

    well that might be because a cease and desist from a non-legal source is likely to be written in crayon.

    courts and lawyers issue cease and desists, not trolls.

    I found a picture of corona.

    But, yeah, rj... I don't understand the world of Linux... but that sounds like a good thing.

    Congrats rj. Will be playing with PCOS soon.
