I didn't realize onboard was even a word, much less a verb. Can someone please explain to me what "onboarding" is?

The word is about 30 years old and is a business term. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, it has three possible meanings:

the act or process of orienting and training a new employee
the act or process of familiarizing a new customer with one's products or services
the act or process of converting data to digital form

source: Definition of ONBOARDING
Curiously, although the word has a verb ending, the dictionary still classifies it as a noun.

It'd be nice to have a feature during "onboarding" that allows one to opt out of bloatware _before_ it is installed......
