”Stock ROM” is the term for the factory provided software.
This is usually an operating system, plus user software.
Some companies abuse that for self-serving-interests: ”bloatware”.
ASUS instead used it for essentials, to offer alternatives for Google.
Below WILL BE PLACED screenshots of the factory supplied software.
That opens the discussion: which alternative serves best.
With the logical alternative: the alternative-alternative.
(Such as: download the VLC media player…)
The description of the Stock ROM also inspires other questions:
”How about … a completely different operating system?”.
”How about … a custom modified standard installation?”.
Before we can discuss that, we must know ‘what Santa delivered’.
