The Verge: Microsoft is infesting Windows 10 with annoying ads

The Verge: Microsoft is infesting Windows 10 with annoying ads. “I’ve sat back and witnessed the development of Windows 10 and appreciated the speed of new feature releases, but it seems there’s a price to pay for this new ‘Windows as a service’ world. Microsoft has gradually been infesting Windows 10 with annoying ads. The first emerged on the lock screen as ‘tips,’ and then there was the bundling of Candy Crush with the OS, and now Microsoft has started blasting notifications into the task bar and File Explorer.”
