+ - End PC Payola with a PC Builder Code of Conduct

Submitted by

dhart writes "PC payola is why new PCs aren't pre-installed with free and open source software, and why consumers are deprived of choice. Payola perpetuates force-feeding consumers with pre-installed popup-infested circus-ware, leaving them confused about 'what to click' and feeling helpless about their out-of-control PCs. This sad situation creates fertile ground for sleazy malware writers. Here's a chance to tell one OEM, Dell, what you think about PC payola. (dhart strikes again)."

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
