Gonna need AdBlock for Windows

from here

I don't know whose idea it was to put ads in the operating system, but clearly it was a bad idea and they should be fired because of how obvious it should have been even without a concrete example of problems in the OS itself. Ads have been a pox on the web for decades and they just get more and more toxic. The people in charge of the OS should have noped right out of that meeting.

I mean, do we have to see malvertizing on the desktop before people clue in?
