I completly agree too.

I always laughed at friends windows box when they hit Shift for some
seconds and get this annoying popup shown.

I love KDE to don't have all those disturbing dialogs that popups every
few minutes under Windows ('low disk space' very intrusive popups,
'accessibility keys' popup appearing during a game that need Shift key
to be pressed during long time, useless confirmation dialogues in
different apps, 'please clean your desktop' popup, 'your antivirus is on
and protects you' message, 'firewall detected an intrusion and rejected
it' info message...).
