From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  nude
   adj.
  
      Said of machines delivered without an operating system (compare bare metal
      ). ?We ordered 50 systems, but they all arrived nude, so we had to spend
      an extra weekend with the installation disks.? This usage is a recent
      innovation reflecting the fact that most IBM-PC clones are now delivered
      with an operating system pre-installed at the factory. Other kinds of
      hardware are still normally delivered without OS, so this term is
      particular to PC support groups.

  nude
  
     Said of machines delivered without an operating system
     (compare bare metal).  "We ordered 50 systems, but they all
     arrived nude, so we had to spend a an extra weekend with the
     installation tapes."  This usage is a recent innovation
     reflecting the fact that most PC clones are now delivered with
     DOS or Microsoft Windows pre-installed at the factory.  Other
     kinds of hardware are still normally delivered without OS, so
     this term is particular to PC support groups.
