“The Redmond software giant confirmed today it will start showing dark blue screens urging people to install the latest version of Windows. The full-screen ads will pop up on Windows 7 and 8.1 desktops from now until July 30, when the free upgrade period ends.”
See Microsoft’s Windows 10 nagware goes FULL SCREEN in final pushI can understand somewhat people patiently dealing with pop-ups from “10” because they asked for it… but these pop-ups are happening on “7” and “8”, operating systems that are supposed to be working for users not M$.
Essentially, folks bought a PC to use, run their applications and browse their networks and M$ has installed malware on them to advertise “10”. Malware. That’s what this is. If the guy who made your OS deliberately installs malware on your PC, what are you going to do?
Escape the slavery I say! Run Debian GNU/Linux or other FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) operating system. Debian promises not to enslave you. That’s worth a lot besides the great desktop/server use it gives you. Let the slaves keep TOOS. Be free!
