Submission + - End PC Payola with a PC Builder Code of Conduct

dhart writes: "PC payola is why new PCs aren't pre-installed with free and open source software, and why consumers are deprived of choice. Payola perpetuates force-feeding consumers with pre-installed popup-infested circus-ware, leaving them confused about 'what to click' and feeling helpless about their out-of-control PCs. This sad situation creates fertile ground for sleazy malware writers. Here's a chance to tell one OEM, Dell, what you think about PC payola. (dhart strikes again)."

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary saftey deserve neither liberty not saftey." -- Benjamin Franklin, 1759
