Microsoft/Lenovo Forge Partnership to Preload Computers with Search

A thread on WebmasterWorld has discussion on the news from last week that IBM/Lenovo has agreed to pre-install the Microsoft Live toolbar on new Lenovo desktops and notebooks. The details of this partnership entitle Microsoft's page to be the homepage on all Lenovo computers, and the Internet Explorer browser will now come pre-loaded with the Microsoft Live toolbar.

While some people think that the competition is good, others are afraid that this will fail:

Most of IBM/Lenovo Customers are corporate users, the first thing a corporate IT dept will do on a Thinkpad is to wipe out all the pre-installed software and install their own!.

I really doubt MS will get a positive return for what they paid Lenova!.
