    Hmm... that's interesting. I'm going to move this to the Comments/Suggestions section. I don't usually see the IntelliTXT scripts (since I have a script blocker).

    I think the ads actually come from Google, but it might be that Core Wizard has some control over which ads show up on this website. I suppose Microsoft might be hoping to sway any users already running Linux (or those just thinking about it) back to Microsoft.
