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.

Because if some day I did want or need to run Windows for some reason, I will likely have to put up with this shit. Especially once Microsoft kills off the traditional desktop once and for all as they want to do, and they want to do it badly if you look at the way they designed Windows 8. You just have to use it for a few minutes to figure that out.
