    Would you like some spyware served alongside your open source library? :-)

    @frogstair They went through a phase where they were famous for injecting adware into open source installers to try to make profit, but in fairness that's long since over. https://reddit.com/r/sysadmin/...

    They're still kinda famous for it, though.

    @AlmondSauce You have an option to not blindly click "next", I suppose o_O

    @akshar And they had the option of not manipulating installers with dodgy adware. Whoever thought that was okay to do deserves a bullet.
    "don't just click next then"
    If I have to slowly click Next, read the whole ad of the installer and click a small, almost transparent button on the left to skip installing "Malicious Browser Toolbar #5564", your installer, and you, suck.

    @PrivateGER I understand your concern and being a designer, I take an oath to never design malicious installers. You can leave your feedback for my service on download.cnet.com

    Happy to help! 😊

    Srsly tho, I'm fed up with these installers. The only clean and non-shady installer I've ever used, was of KMSPico. 👀
