Hard to avoid for the average user if they receive a new computer and
discover that even though they have carefully chosen XP Pro as the OS, the
vendor has upgraded their Office version and IE version.

I also encounter mandatory upgrades to critical business software which
demand an newer version of OS or IE than I would choose on my own.

Informed consent is marginal in this space.
