Windows 10 is Advertising Platform
Up until recently, I never had a big issue with Microsoft's Windows 10 OS, but lately I've been getting a bunch of spammy adds in the File Explorer, reminding me to use OneDrive and other Microsoft services that of course I have to pay for. While it's true that they have the right to offer me their services, I do expect that when I pay for an OS, I will get it ad-free - unless I have malware. Apparently, that Malware is called Windows 10. I'm not the only one irritated by this.
Don't believe what Microsoft tells you -- Windows 10 is not an operating system. Oh, sure, it has many features that make it look like an operating system, but in reality it is nothing more than a vehicle for advertisements. Since the launch of Windows 10, there have been numerous complaints about ads in various forms. They appear in the Start menu, in the taskbar, in the Action Center, in Explorer, in the Ink Workspace, on the Lock Screen, in the Share tool, in the Windows Store and even in File Explorer.
