There are a lot of reasons to like Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system, which has been downloaded 300 million times since it debuted last summer. For starters, it's free until this summer.

And, compared to older versions of Windows, your computer startup time is faster. You're getting more security and you're also getting cool features like the voice-activated personal assistant Cortana.

But, before you download your free-for-now Windows 10, we recently told you 10 reasons NOT to switch to Windows 10. Here's No. 11.

Ads for its apps. Or, promoted apps. (See photo below.)

If you already have Windows 10, you know Microsoft promotes its apps like Xbox when you click on the Start menu. Those are apps that you don't have and probably don't want that Microsoft puts onto your list of apps.

Guess what? Microsoft is doubling the number of those promoted apps, or ads, from five to 10 when it rolls out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update this summer.

What do you think about these so-called "promoted apps?" Annoying or not too bad? Let us know in the Comments.
