Am I the only person who immediately deletes any preloaded content? I don't think I've ever bought a device or OS that had something I wanted to keep.

While I usually give the free content a try, I've never liked any of it.

I usually check it out first, explore it a bit, to see if there's anything worth keeping. I sometimes find bands I want to check out more on my own. I really like the fact that they include some content, that's better than anything Apple has ever done.

Covert's post better captured what I meant. I have yet to find anything in the preloaded content that I have enjoyed, and I end up deleting it. I appreciate the sentiment, but I'd rather get less content, but be able to choose the genre - maybe then I would find something interesting.

As it stands, preloaded content usually consists of one song from each of a number of genres. The chances of them getting it "right" for me are slim. In theory it is better than nothing, but in practice that is exactly what it is for me.
