I would have to say, the trend to "Nero Express" as the OEM bundle, instead of a lightly clipped version which can be used in Full Classic, Wizard or Express, is VERY NEGATIVE.
There's not much I'd be happier to get with a drive than the "standard" Nero OEM/Bundle, but to me, Express alone degrades the bundle severely. Maybe I'm biased (having used classic for ages), but I wouldn't even consider Express as easier for newbies.
Mind you - some systems supplied with a drive, just seem to rely on the lamentable Windows software.
The answer, of course, is to vote with your feet - if suppliers notice a dropoff in sales of drives with poor bundle versions, the descent will be reversed.
