My mother in law asked me to fix her computer. “It’s just really slow.” I haven’t used Windows since, uhhh, XP I guess? And like, Windows has just gotten more and more garbage since then.

Microsoft has a lot of crimes to pay for but wow, Windows really sucks 😭

A good deal of the blame here falls on Asus for installing a bunch of bloatware, but then, who set up the OEM deals to make that possible? Microsoft.

@ashfurrow I thought everyone reinstalled Windows right after making sure the hardware worked.


@gudenau not my mother in law apparently. Neither my family nor my partner’s are at all computer savvy.

@ashfurrow Wasn't there a UEFI that would install bloat when you installed Windows? That sounds familiar to me.
