    I was bored at work so chatted with Microsoft support about this.

    Summary of funny part

    Me: no, it’s an advertisement, asking me to try a Microsoft product. The ad came through my message tray. I have all ad services turned off.

    Them: that’s not an ad, that’s recommendation for a better service

    Me: are you aware that you just described an advertisement?

    Them: yes.

          Gaming on Linux works quite well. I haven’t found a game that didn’t work, but I haven’t played them all, so I’m sure at least one exists. Also, there absolutely is a Linux distro you would like, but it’s irrelevant if you’re happy on windows. We have a choice of OS, which is a beautiful thing. Lastly, Linux people aren’t “so damn annoying” in the least bit. Stubborn people are, but Linux folks don’t tend to be overly stubborn, I’ve noticed.

          E: also, my meme had nothing to do with Linux at all. It’s about being annoyed with ads within windows.

      They probably have to recite a standard company line, gritting their teeth as you both know it’s bullshit.

      I don’t envy customer service reps. Most of them probably didn’t apply for the job because they love Microsoft or enjoy the prospect of fielding frustrated customers’ calls.
