Microsoft to give away Windows for Free... (maybe)
Okay you sick bast*rd, microsoft, why are you trying to make me buy things?
The audacity of this one just floored me.
A "Shop for music online" button turned up inside windows explorer, where I was expecting to find the "Make a new folder" button.
On closer inspection, the tenuous excuse microsoft have for showing me this button: One of the subfolders contains a three kilobyte file called "ping.wav".
Ah, anyway: I see the future now...
Microsoft will eventually give away their operating system for free.
Absolutely free. Gratis. Not one dime. Oh -- just two small "features" you can't disable:
- Digital rights management that stops all tinkering with the OS
- Contextual ads absolutely everywhere.
Clippy will be a laughable and funny guy compared with the monsters of contextual intrusion that MS will release in this forthcoming monster.
WHo am I kidding? I'd still use it. And you probably would too. Maybe I should start tinkering with ReactOS.
So here's my contextual ad:
