    They keep adding like 50 a year, plus a few minor tweaks, like a better GUI, but I just like to keep it updated.

    An OS most people paid for and still get charged for it.

    I don't really mind the ads but today they were not in English. This I have a problem with.

    Then it's spam. A terrible indictment of modern software that care little about its users or the Windows legacy.

    That Build 17134... not there yet since I'm in the regular release schedule, but it sounds horrifying from the ad perspective.
    Another beast, with hopefully less bugs...

    Correct! and this breaks the "Don’t send spam" rule then...

    Looking closely at those Ten Commandments:
    Just like Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics, in the long run the rules can be interpreted in a wide variety of ways.

    Regardless of OS, the ad vs ad-blocker wars will continue.

    Mirosoft seems intent on preventing you from using those original games. Each new build seems to break the functionality when you upgrade. Forcing a reinstall. sometimes that doesn't even fix it. I was using the App until the adds showed up, then promptly uninstalled it. Microsoft even went as far as advising MVP's to recomend users avoid the old games pack. As it wasn't an official microsoft release and "may" contain nasties. IMHO, the reality was they just wanted you using the App instead. Thats the impression I got from the discusion.
