This is Windows 10 Pro, immediately after installation:
Notice anything weird?
Here, let me enhance the image for you:
See all those red rectangles? Those are ads for third party products. What about the yellow ones instead? Those are ads for Microsoft’s own products.
Windows 10 Pro has a retail price, in Italy, of 259€. That would be around 320$ with today’s exchange rates.
Ads. In a product that costs 259€. Not to mention the constant nagging to install Office, use Edge, switch to OneDrive, or to try Cortana.
Get. Out. Of. My. Way.
For this reason alone, I consider Windows 10 Pro rubbish. I will never touch it again willingly.
At least Apple, for all its faults, still doesn’t disrespect me so much to sell me an expensive laptop full of ads. I guess I know where my money is going for the foreseeable future.
