    Haha ... Ironic!


    I believe what MS REALLY wants is a subscription service. They must be very careful how they transition to it, but I think it's their long game.

    Please don't post articles that require a subscription to read. $64 to read articles on one site is a ripoff.

    That said, I've read a number of Paul Thurrot's post, but obviously not at his site. Had I not seen the above I would have argued you down

    Well, Cortana is their *****, umm, I mean employee/tool, so obviously.
    I was just revising my tweaks and there are ~8 ways, MS delivers ADs, so far.
    You can not even disable some of them, because they randomized, like services.
