"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.

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.

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.
