Over in the Five Tips blog, Michael Kassner shared several practical ways to get rid of that curse of the brand new PC: crapware. As he points out, crapware is messy and annoying — and worse — it can cause problems with your system. But he doesn’t just hate crapware and the mess it can make — he doesn’t like the term crapware, either. So he asked TechRepublic members to suggest some better alternatives. The response (and the venting) have been enthusiastic. Michael made a list of the 10 terms he likes best so far. Now it’s time to put it to a vote. Weigh in on your favorite — or join the discussion and share your own suggestions.
Maybe the word 'crapware' says it all. But Michael Kassner is searching for a better descriptor for that plague of unwanted software. Vote for your favorite new name.
