it should not be such a big problem since (afaik) the hardware is  
compatible to other pc and there are "system builder versions"* of  
windows where you can "click together" your own windows without all  
the clutter.

it is quite some work but possible. i think the guys from ms could do  
it in very short time if they need not to write new drivers.

*i am not sure if this is the real name of it, never did it myself,  
just stood behind someone doing it.
