Hi a,

I often will remove the same type of software. However, I typically will 
wipe the drive with gdisk and add a different filesystem. Typically 
either XFS or FAT32, depending on the usage.

But removing the pre-installed software is _usually_ fine. I can't think 
of any direct examples where you would want to be careful. Any consumer 
USB drive you get at a store is going to be okay with wiping and 
installing something else.

Just my 2¢
