"You can't shame some companies."

Or some of the people who comment on articles.
They make the guys who used to argue about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin seem rational.

That charge is unconscionable.
So there.

"Best not to think about it. I don't want to fall to bits 'cos of excess existential thought."

Unbelievable... Do they really think each Dell computer manufactured had an individual toiling away with installing the OS and all the crapware for hours on each one? One image distributed out to 1 million computers - done.
Heading out to the gardens...

Dell claims the charge is for the time it takes to install FireFox. But Mozilla sent the writer a Ts&C which states no charge may be assessed for distribution of FireFox. If there is a charge, FireFox must be renamed with no reference to Mozilla.

Seems to me someone is going to be getting a refund. A lot of someones.
If something gets your goat, it just proves you have a goat to get.

Almost as bad as Pc World (Uk chain of pc shops) trying to you get you to pay for defraging and backing up your computer!
If you want trouble, get yourself a redhead!
