I don't see where your getting this idea of a dependency on windows
from? As Tim says, why delete something that came with the laptop? its
there 'just in case', its like saying i've a dependency on an
airbag,yet it doesn't influence my life at all, i don't drive any
more, faster or otherwise because of it. But it might come in handy
some day so i don't see the point in ripping it out of my car so it
can be a tiny bit lighter and thus more fuel efficent.
