I would suggest to the manufacturer that they add a sound file of children
laughing to the happy people pictures.
While the customer waits and waits for the bloatware to load, they get to relax
to the view of happy people while children's laughter blares in the background.
Maybe an Agfa mascot, like "Clippy", could dance across the screen also.
Sometimes I wish I worked in marketing...
