Well then let me say something about the Dell running OS X.

It is widely believed that every intel based Mac has a special Apple designed chip (some form of TPM chip or other custom designed chip). And we know that the soon to be released Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" will be a intel-only release (No more PowerPC Support).

Since all supported systems will now have the chip, Apple can make the OS require this chip to function (or actually some software code on the chip).

This should make it much harder for PC users to pirate Mac OS X and install it on non-Apple hardware (Which will be proven illegal in the Psystar case).

People download the hacked OS X image from BitTorrent websites to install on their PCs, therefore pirating. I highly doubt those people are paying Apple $129 for the leopard install DVD (because it wont run on PCs until its modified).

That should take care of about 1/2 of the drive.
What about the other half ???

Google Chrome...bundled with RealPlayer?!

For me that would be a killer as I have avoided realplayer like the plague that it is (IMHO). I use real alternative if I have any file types that would use it.

When are they going to stop bundling all this Cr*p and let users decide if they need or want it.

Google Operating System’s Alex Chitu reports that the latest version of Real Networks’ RealPlayer comes bundled with Google Chrome and, by default, installs the browser.

So we don't even know if there is an option not to install it.

David,
If you download Real Player (I wouldn't), then you get Google Chrome.

When you download Google Chrome, that's all you get.  ;D
