This has been going on for a while
and it's mainly a part of MS Onedrive?
The article mentions that you can turn some of the ads off at the expense of loosing legitimate notifications, but I actually like to keep my programs up to date. Not so much for the "new & improved" features that I rarely find useful, but for the possibility that they may help to protect against viruses & malware.
OS ads, huh. Live and learn.
Maybe I'm getting old, but I saw enough benefits in Windows 10 Professional that I paid for it. And I've never seen these ads.
Also, and this is the "getting old" part, I want full possession of my programs and data. And I want access to them when I want them.
Power problem? I have a generator. Internet problem? I have full possession of my programs & data. No problems.
SSDs & hard drives are so cheep that keeping your data on the "cloud" doesn't make sense to me. I have full and incremental backups.TWO sets to be exact.
One that is frequently updated, and one in a fire box that's in a fire safe.
Yes, I'm redundant. Even my wife has her own fire safe.
I suppose that I'm a cranky old bastard too. One of the reason that I gave up TV years ago is that I couldn't stand the incredibly stupid ads.
I pity you poor fools
people who feel the need to stay up to date with the laugh tracks of whatever the current "culturally popular" TV show is.
Actually, I don't pity you. You make your choices, you live with them.
Yeah. Cranky old bastard.
