MS has made statements to the effect that they did not realize the 'advertising potential.' Looks like advertising platform is a VERY good new name for Win10. Of course they (M$) will tout the mass acceptance of their "free upgrade" that will arrive someday soon to my reserved tag. THE BIGGEST DOWNLOAD IN HISTORY! Maybe the LONGEST running. I hope their servers choke on it. Have you noticed M$ is giving away the win10 upgrade to the 'least needed' crowd? And that M$ was listening when most of us said every newer version of windows is like an upgrade from the last. Why should we buy a new windows version when it's basically an upgrade? Point taken...thanks Bill G

"My TV doesn't tell me that, it tells me it's flat, with some bad indicators." PLUS it tells you how much better it is than the rest of the world RIGHT? So that makes even more reason to trounce the euro etc. Meanwhile China's stock market plunge is being covered VERY little. I hope they don't want their 1.5 trillion US$ real soon.

I love that analogy NotDrWho. Remember this is done by a "Democratic Nation" I am an American and I am ashamed of what we do in the world and to our own citizens. Remember Joe Wilson? The CIA guy that tried to warn us of the George Bush reason to go to war with Iran; "Substantial quantities of Uranium from Africa" lie? Him and his beautiful wife were ran under the bus. The 'big Dick' Cheney should be drug back here from Dubai and strung up for treachery. But naaaaw let's just keep paying double for oil. And not put anything into mass transit. Like the rest of the world is showing us the very thing we need to do here. Wake up.

Everyone does not have a few hundred dollars in their wallet Mr Starbucks. I'll wait for a used or damaged unit that I can fix to get the OS for free. That is unless MS starts charging a yearly license. Then its linux for the masses. My POS winXP uodate should last until 2019 and there will be plenty of Win10 machines being thrown out by then! I paid $20 for a dealer to instal Win98SE and that's the LAST time I bought windows other than a reinstall copy for $10.

Don't give any poverty 'victims' anything but a CHANCE to succeed. Redistributing wealth does NOT mean handing out anything but advice on how to hold on to your money and invest like rich people do. You know, in a place like public school??? Why aren't we told about falling under the credit 'thumb of life' there? A hand up not a hand out. Get real you whinners. I donated $10 to Bernie for a statement. He has a chance if he opposes the status quo. Everyone knows we HAVE to do SOMETHING to fix our (best government corporate money can buy.)

Let's see proper criticism? Ok Give me ALL their brand names so we know which ones to bury burn or otherwise mutilate. I will have to shop wisely to find a company they have NOT assimilated. Borg Gates. Your MSoffice purchase allows this sort of dominating. So SSstop it.
