I tend to agree with this. Ever since I installed a clean copy of Windows on my first Packard Bell desktop and saw how much better it ran without bloat ware I am against overloading a default OS. Linux is never loaded down with bloat ware but for me it is always better having clean menus to load up with what I use. Yes, things can be taken away but the more minimal from the start the better. Android actually makes me mad, it is like buying a prebuilt PC in the 90s! Also, it seems you play a cat and mouse game getting things off and keeping them off.
