Nice. The company I work for uses some MS Windows software where the vendor won't even give me install software. They insist the user must call them to install. The user must log into their website to get access to the install software. I don't have a log in, so I don't pre-install that software. The users complain to me and I refer them to the vendor. Yes, some vendors are annoying. It sounds like maybe you'd prefer clean installs but, due to real world compromises, you can't always do that. > And by the way, there are 50% chances that this piece of software was > used in the process of design of your phone.
