This is Windows 10 Pro, immediately after installation:

Windows 10 Pro after installation

Notice anything weird?


Here, let me enhance the image:

Windows 10 Pro ads

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, try Cortana or update the system at the most inconvenient time (despite having set “active hours”).

Satya wants people to love Windows instead of needing it. I can’t imagine myself loving Windows when it tries so hard to push me away.
