I bought my current laptop last year. While wondering how annoying it would be to set up a dual-boot and have a not-so-bloated windows install, I've had enough:

I called Dell, telling them I'm not agreeing with their software license and that I want to return them all the software. 5 minutes.

Got 180€ back for this.

Wiped the entire HDD. Ah man! That felt good. No more rants on crapware.

Installed Ubuntu.

Now I have a computer that does what I want it to do, not what I'm supposed to want.

Sure I have to put up with other issues now but what a liberative experience.
