And this is why Microsoft has no problem implenting adverts. You'll actually *pay money* to submit yourself to advertisments...

Why is MS trying to make more money? ...and in such a lame way... Is the money they're "losing" on the Xbox 360s cutting that much into their budget?

Am I the only one that think s that mabye MS is trying to make it harder for people to create these programs by patenting them first. Or it would at least give MS the ability to sue for it.

Bueller?

Thats exactly what I was thinking, patent a killer adware idea first so noone can actaully implement the dreaded thing.

Actually I was thinking more along the lines of when someone else implements it, which is inevitable, MS can get PAID.

I doubt they're trying to make more money like this... I believe they're trying to find more ways to sue people that are trying to make money off of stupid clients of theirs. Really now, think about it... If Microsoft was to get rid of all adware, don't you think most stupid Windows users (the kind that get adware) would be happy?

Heck, it'd really kill my freelancer-style workload.
