Getting bugged by your Acer?

I’m not going to opine on the validity of this discovery, but I’ll throw in my two cents on the Slashdot commentary.

Some folks noted that when they receive their machines, they immediately reformatted the drives and reinstalled (or installed alternative) operating systems. When I was part of the Windows world (using Dells) I did the same, never quite trusting the factory install. And I always had a retail (or MSDN Universal Subscription) version handy to do it.

Do all Windows machines come with manufacturer images nowadays?
