The main reason I haven't switched yet is because of gaming. If I have the OS interupt a game just to pop up some ad, then I will stop playing games altogether on the PC. Heck, we bought a Wii for my wife, it's time that I start using that.

Ya but technically if you patent certain methods that adds pop up you could legally attack spyware makers right?

 

......or encourage it

I read a while back ago that M$ was planning to come out with a really cheap o.s. and it would have advertising for the costs reduction

novice users may find this useful, in fact they can shop every time there submitted to adds :huh:

 

 

i think the advanced users wont have a chance of modifying core components to disable this great feature :blink:

 

 

isn't this forced upon users ! i would guess that micros-o-ft customers would not mind being interrupted being showered with pretty adds :unsure:

 

personally i don't get it, hasn't it been about there customers all along, i mean you pay for something an expect ease of use and Privacy considering we fought so hard in the past to remove adware then to be faced with it once again, i cannot see the logic in it unless of course its never been about there customers :)

Surely you jest, of course with Microsoft it has never been about the customer but about the all mighty
