I think any comparison between Apple having bloatware, and MS having bloatware, just makes you look silly.
You don't understand the conversation. That makes YOU look silly.
I was talking about what is installed in the OS, not necessrrily the overall install.
You want to compare all the AOL, Tax software, virus software trials, and endless other stuff in the PC boxes you buy with a bunch of fonts on your MAC? you think THAT's the same thing.
Got a question for ya spanky...... aren't there a lot of fonts in Vista? Huh?
Let's not get silly.
You're not too smart, are you?
Saying a percentage of the space OS-X takes up compares to the percentage bloated in Vista is silly since Vista is so much more huger! (how's that for a bloated way to talk)
I figure it's your lack of erudition.
The problem is not just MicroSoft, it's the combination of the MicroSoft software deals and the hardware crap added to it. We could have a running competition about which hardware companies do the most to make their machine a bloated mess. (the first thing I did with my Dell was reformat it to remove the crap they shipped me)
I've put OS X on two of my MACS, and neither had any 3rd party applications on their desktops and when I went through the install for OS X that process didn't bloat me a 3rd party app either.
Jeepers, complaining that OS X and Apple may have more pieces on your machine for what you might add later in your useful life with it, like fonts, is NOT what people with a Dell using Vista are annoyed with.
Let's get off the Apple is bloated like MicroSoft joke, it's funny but not the way you think.
When you buy a new Mac (should you ever afford one) there are the software trials that Apple has installed.
But, then, Apple sells it's own software that PC makers, as hardware companies only don't have. So they have to give away what they find as equivalent.
I'm not saying it's great on their part.
But, you're being overly offensive when you don't have to.
