Hi

I use a Mac for most things, but recently I needed to get a PC to run a Windows only bit of software.

The computer came with OS8 installed. I have to say as a computing experience I think it dreadful, it's trying to turn the computer into a smartphone, it keeps wanting to send me shopping via various adverts it calls apps.

Many, if not most, computers come with software installed that wants you to buy full versions. This is nothing new, just maybe a different angle wanting you to buy stuff since many a computer user will only migrate to free internet programs.

There must be something like a Pro version of this that gets rid of all the junk if you don't want it.

Presumably Microsoft gets some kind of kickback for trying to get you to constantly click links, not what I want out of a work tool.

They were probably paid upfront to include any sales programs on your system, see above.

This is so spot on
