Really great article which makes a very good point that I don't think a lot of people really think about. Thanks for the post!

Would be interesting to see how many people are actually happy with their "bloatware". Theres definitely people out there who bought an android phone and love what HTC or Motorola has pre-loaded on their phone. We only hear from people who complain about it but im sure there are tons of happy customers who are enjoying their phone without rooting it, theyre just not as vocal.

There is a difference in the bloatware on a phone versus a PC. On a PC the PC maker gets money from the bloatware provider but the bloatware can usually be removed without much hastle. On a phone the bloatware is more directly connected to the carrier and there cash flow plans AND they often make it difficult to remove the crap.
I'd prefer to be able to add only the software I want. At this point I'm OK with sense on my Evo but the other crap from Sprint should be flushed.
