Lots of Windows software have annoying popups. I'm sure you guys know what i'm talking about, 'this software is out of date' 'trial our premium software now'. Antivirus software is notorious for it.
I hate adverts on my television and radio and that's why i only watch downloaded/ripped video, and listen to my personal music collection and a little government radio. I sure as hell am not going to put up with adverts on my personal computers, if i can help it, (youtube pisses me off). I have never had to put up with that crap on Gnu/Linux.
That and the fact that most third party software on windows by default tries to sneak and install extra crap without your knowledge. You usually have to go with custom/advanced options to stop that crap. Everybody wants to set your home page and install toolbars when you never asked for any of that stuff.
