    A rather stable, ever expanding company through the years at that. Keyword here is "expanding". Every organism in the world needs to keep growing or rejuvenating, otherwise it dies and withers away. That includes cells, you, me, companies, relationships, etc.
    Yup, that describes me as I've aged - ever expanding/growing waist line...

    And so far Windows 10 is a polished turd. Maybe they have run out of Brasso?
    For my usage I quite like it, fortunately for me I'm not affected by the omission of Media Centre or the like as they're features I never used, but I can see why people will not want W10 solely for those reasons. Print to PDF is a quality addition though.

    Or, you just become the product...

    Is that your own quote or someone else's?
    That's just my statements...

    I've never stated "evil Bing" or Microsoft for that matter. They are responding to market movement/direction with not only profitability in mind, but also trying to preserve their market share and viability as a company. It's a great business decision, with very little protest from the user community, and chances are that they'll be very successful at this. May take them some time but will dethrone Google as the king of advertisement.

    It's one thing to advertise on the web, in the browser, and it is another to do it in the OS. Yes, it's been done before by others, but nowhere nearby the market share that MS has on the desktop. Sooner or later, I'd need to pay for this or later OS, to blast me for ads, and I don't like it. Hence the reason why I'll keep my previous version until I can. By the time the current OS needs to be replaced, I am certain that there will be guidance, software, registry settings, etc., to disable advertisment. Even now, I can disable Cortana but it pretty much slows down W10. The alternative is to disable access to on my firewall...

    And while Linux is a great OS, I'd rather use OSX with MS business apps than Open Office or whatever it's called nowadays. this is not a judgment call, just evaluating my needs...
