[QUOTE=ChristineBCW;2697093]Domi, I don’t think this can be considered anything BUT bloatware, too. At first, Lenovo sounds like they’re “fighting the users’ fight” until I saw the bit about "direct link into that vendor’s App Store. Exactly how many App Stores does any hardware seller believe their customers will use? Five? Twenty?
Bloatware, indeed. I congratulate Lenovo for coming up with an innovative excuse to add in more stuff - their computers have not matched HP’s for Total Bloatware yet, but we’ll see what else is shoveled in there.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=debro;2697101]Kudos to Microsoft for making in roads for fragmented user experience with 1000 app stores.[/QUOTE]
They’re not the first to do that. I have a Toshiba Android tablet with about half a dozen ‘App Stores’. (Toshiba, A model specific one, Google Play, Amazon, … even the non-removeable pre-loaded games have one!)
