    I use W10 in pretty much the same way as I did with Vista, W7 and latterly W8.1 (which was effectively killed by MS with all the W10 update stuff) and now W10 Pro. Apart from having the news, money and weather tiles pinned to the start menu (the only so called apps I use) I am never aware of any ads whatsoever apart from being nagged to try Office which appears as a notification every so often.

    What I'm getting at is that W10 used purely as an old fashioned operating system like W7 etc is just fine in my experience. Ads... what ads ?

    As to how long will/would/should MS support W10, well I think the answer to that will be in ever changing and improving technology. To make use of what is undoubtedly around the corner will require something as far removed as W10 is from Windows 98. So in my opinion W10 will not run for very long before something new is on the horizon.
    load win 10 start menu, right click on box and select unpin or uninstall

    actually the ads are for when Microsoft starts charging for windows 10 if you want your copy to remain a free version. as long as you pay for your copy no ads. now windows store apps are a different story. but most of us do not bother with the windows store. myself i only use accuweather from the store and the 2 times a day i open it i can deal with the ad across the top. as for the rest of the apps that do come with 10 i just uninstall them all.

    Would not be so bad if the OS was free but its not. Unlike most other OS out there.

    I have been using Windows 10 Pro since it came out and I have not noticed any ads from MS. I do not use any aps from the windows store...just flow-blown applications. Maybe that is why I have not noticed any ads.

    What? If you upgraded from Windows 7 or 8 it's free for life. Microsoft is not going to turn around and start pushing you ads just for that.

    no the idea is only for those that did not take advantage of the free upgrade period. in the future if you want winders 10 free you will have to put up with ads,
