Most business laptops ship with a lot of things. Most home laptops ship
with a lot of things. Most of that lot doesn't get used.
Most home computers find the same thing, this is why stuff like Wild
Tangent and such winds up on all the machines at Best Buy; it's there
because some company wants to sell it. Hell, AOL is there because some
company wants to sell it (Compuserv is there too, so is MSN).
Most business laptops ship with whatever some company thinks it's worth
marketing by paying laptop manufacturers to bundle it on business
machines. It's no different than random games or useless applications
on your home desktop; any useful functionality you may find is for all
intents and purposes a complete accident.
