To offset this foolish trend by Microsoft, I have been testing living 100% in Linux Mint on a Microsoft Surface (take that you ad-monger!). so far, not bad.

Microsoft is starting to enable ads inside the Start menu on Windows 11 for all users. After testing these briefly with Windows Insiders earlier this month, Microsoft has started to distribute update KB5036980 to Windows 11 users this week, which includes “recommendations” for apps from the Microsoft Store in the Start menu. via The Verge

Can you imagine when this reaches school desktops running Windows 11? Channel One debacle. But it won’t come to that…Chromebooks for the win.
