Oh, joy. So... the boxen loaded with adware and spyware from the very beginning. With a rootkit or two thrown in to make it harder to find and remove^W^W^W^W^Weasier to do remote troubleshooting. Wonderful, innit?

What a cynic ... :-)

Though I'm inclined to agree with you a bit.

Thing is, though. If the boxes come with a WORKING linux distro installed (hopefully they'll subcontract maintaining the basic OS to a linux company like Red Hat or SUSE or Canonical), anybody who knows what they're doing will be able to just put any distro they want on.

Bit like today with Windows where you *can* (okay it's rather tricky ...) get hold of a clean install and over-write the vendor's adware-laden rubbish.

Cheers,
Wol
