Google can at least be partially justified (Disclaimer: I hate Google and am not defending them) by the fact that the service is otherwise free and is ad supported.
Integrating ads into a $200 OS is disgraceful. It would be like if HBO suddenly started putting commercial interruptions into movies they show.
Agreed. But MS is god so they cannot do nothing to upset users...
I use MS products more than any other company...but this is just plain stupid. Ads on bing.com...fine, but keep it out of the OS.
