Microsoft, stop sabotaging Windows 10

Windows 10 is a good operating system, the first one since Windows 7. But Microsoft seems determined to penalize users who adopt it.

The latest beta version of the forthcoming Creators Update due this spring is getting attention because it places even more ads in Windows. Windows 10 is already annoying users with ads on the lock screen and in the Start screen, but Microsoft has decided to annoy users even more by bringing ads to File Explorer. This stupidity will create a backlash if not reversed.
