This guy went a step further and wrote a script to do it. And he stole my name — I should have trademarked “decrap.”
The script was created for a Dell Inspiron 1300, but it should work just fine on many other Dell computers. I’ve also written the script in a modular way so that it can be easily expanded to uninstall additional programs. I’m really hoping that through additional contributions, that this script would be enhanced to cover just about any standard Dell installation.
I just decrapped another Dell the other day. I wish I had known about this.
