Windows "Despite the fact that I've been using Windows 8 for the past three weeks, I somehow managed to overlook a rather stark feature in the OS: ads. No, we're not talking about ads cluttering up the desktop or login screen (thankfully), but rather ads that can be found inside of some Modern UI apps that Windows ships with. That includes Finance, Weather, Travel, News and so forth. Is it a problem? Let's tackle this from a couple of different angles." Hadn't seen them either - I don't use those applications - but this is pretty despicable.

Yeah. Luckily Ubuntu is only one of the dozen-plus "major" distributions, and there are literally hundreds of others to choose from, and none of them try to force advertising of such important computer tools as laundry detergent and shampoo upon you.
