New PC? De-crapify it!

If you've recently purchased a new computer, and are frustrated with all the bundled software (often referred to as "Crapware"), you may want to check out the PC De-Crapifier (yes, that's really it's name). The idea here is that it's almost always the same unwanted software that comes bundled on new machines. The application started off life as the "Dell De-Crapifier", but recently switched to the more generic name as it became apparent that it could be useful for any brand of computer that comes with preinstalled software.

It sure would be nice if computer manufacturers would figure out that we don't want all this cruddy software installed on our new machines before we have a chance to gunk them up with our own software!
