I found that most in app ads stay out of the way and don't really detract from the overall experience. I think they chose to put in ads since they made the retail sticker so cheap this time around.

Makes me wonder if this whole "metro" abomination is actually Ballmer/microsofts answer to their failed "windows as a subscription" scheme.

"if we can't ream them with absurd subscription fees we'll rape them with ads!!!"
