Since Linux users make up 1% of the market share (I'm not sure the % for gamers, but could be lower), I'll doubt they'll lose sleep over it.

I'm using Windows and Crimson seems fine and dandy. Oh, Windows is crap you say? Well, too bad. Guess you'll just have to live with your poor steam selection and spotty driver support. Fortunately I hear nVidia has been treating Linux users just fine.

But let's be clear they're not dropping the ball because you're not entitled to super duper spectacular driver support when you choose an operating system that hardly anyone outside of your profession uses.

I actually was in a free lunch program so I know all the hoops we had to jump through just to get it.

Someone who could afford a BMW wouldn't make it there. All these stories about people on foodstamps driving Mercedes are largely myths. Even if there are a handful of people who do exploit the system, it's not as rampant as mister, "Too many parents driving new cars to pick up their kids who get free lunches!"

What's ridiculous is that stigmatizing attitude against the poor. The last thing they need is some moron claiming that they're stealing all the money when really they're just trying to survive in a broken system.

The same people who call Windows 10 Spyware tend to be the same people who are perfectly okay with using an android phone or have a far less overblown reaction to Google.

As for the ads in Windows 10, you can disable it by right clicking the ad and selecting, "Don't show ads again."
