Microsoft is infesting Windows 10 with annoying ads

Now Microsoft is planning to preload another app in Windows 10 [http://www.theverge.com/2017/3/17/14956540/microsoft-windows-10-ads-taskbar-file-explorer]: Sling TV. While only US Windows 10 users will get Sling TV preloaded without the necessary subscription, it will sit alongside Candy Crush and Solitaire as other examples of what will soon be described as bloatware. Thankfully, it’s easy to uninstall these unnecessary apps, but that doesn’t mean Microsoft won’t add more to the mix in the future. Microsoft used to blame its OEM partners for bundling lots of useless apps on Windows PCs, but now it has itself to blame for doing the same to Windows 10.

More and more ads are coming to products you actually already pay for.
