And before we had I.E. as the main platform to download Firefox, and Bing as the searching gear for looking up to it or to google... now they only labeled it Edge... but it kept it fame and now MS is pushing harder.
Internet explorer is still tucked away inside Windows 10 as well, for compatibility reasons with certain sites for banking etc! Hidden in the back of course, but it's still there, doing it's IE thing :)
Well, on that they don't have much choice, and if it didn't had that we wouldn't be able to use a lot of bank and govenrment sites (in fact, in my company PC if I use a I.E. version that is too new it won't open a lot of sites)
I'm waiting for a ad on PS4 saying how worse and slower/weaker X1 is.
Enjoy 36% more frames/Pixels if you played this game on PS4 instead?
Yep, they should put it in every screen loading and game start.
You're using Microsoft's software. Theyre going to advertise their stuff to you. Just like if you visit Google on a non-Google browser, they say something about Chrome being better.
People are comparing it to other game companies, games are not a relevant comparison. You can't play Sony software on a Microsoft console. Otherwise, Sony would advertise the PS4 version.
Sony had multiplats in the past (that if I'm not wrong even had PC versions, but wouldn't say Nintendo console version was better) and also the company that was recently spun off that done MMO was PC compatible and even then they didn't put advertise against the PC version inside the game.
Besides that, the one comparing other gaming companies was someone trying to defend MS not the opposite.
And again, the problem with the advertise isn't the advertise itself, it's that MS is using an unfair practice (like they done in the past against Netscape, by offering their free browser already pre-instaled on the windows itself), because they are leveraging their monopoly in OS to promote their products while also tarnishing their competitor and trying to move sales by that.
And google saying their site works better in their browser is a lot more like I.E. in the past asking to be default browser than this case in hand because it didn't said "Google Chrome is X% better than this browser you are using" and on the case of google you are willingly going to their page instead of the OS being installed in the machine you bought and also giving intrusive ads.
