That's almost correct but not quite. In 99% of the cases any Intel commodity
mafiaware comes with a preinstalled Winblows. You're paying for it whether
you want it or not. You can get a refund in many cases but it's more effort
than most peoples' time is worth.

True. I got rid of all my Intel mafiaware a few years ago and I don't miss
it. It's nice in the winter as well.

I hope it does but sheeple are stupid and don't care.
