After Walt Mossberg's recent plea to PC makers to refrain from installing trial and bundled "crapware" on new machines, Apple has been quick to pounce on this little (big) problem. I recently purchased a new Thinkpad, a machine which traditionally had a reputation of being very task orientated. Even though the "Thinkvantage" suite is essential to certain hardware's functions, it is still poorly designed and sometimes slows the machine down to a crawl... I would really appreciate more control over the initial power up phase of a new machine... I mean how many people have to realize at some point that Norton Antivirus is actually a pile of junk?

I thought the new Get a Mac ads are lame - until the absolute truth of this ad hits you... But the Apple guy is still a pompous prick.
