Walt on disrespecting the computer consumer

Walt Mossberg talks about how his new Sony confronted him with two dozen trial programs advertising their virtues and 21 software updates. Then he goes on to say:

"I also was shocked at how long this machine took to restart and to do a cold start after being completely shut down. Restarting took over three minutes, and a cold start took more than two minutes. That suggests the computer is loading a bunch of stuff I neither know about nor want. By contrast, a brand new Apple MacBook laptop, under the same test conditions, restarted in 34 seconds and did a cold start in 29 seconds."
