It adds next to nothing to your overall security. That's why it is ignored by most 3rd party AV. Not to mention that not all browsers even support MOTW. If you are using 100 % Microsoft for everything, then sure, it's OK. However, in such a case connect an infected usb flash drive or any other infected drive type to your system and see what happens.It's only a joke that this simple feature isn't part of all archive tools.
And it's also still a good security feature
That's wrong. You should read about that in eg. this forum.It adds next to nothing to your overall security.
I don't care about 3rd party AV. Windows internal protection is the only real one, which only can use all internal OS features and doesn't increase attack surface.That's why it is ignored by most 3rd party AV.
Which one? Edge, Firefox does it. And i would say that Chrome (can't verify) did it too.Not to mention that not all browsers even support MOTW.

OK. Whatever. You are obviously getting all uppity upset.That's wrong. You should read about that in eg. this forum.

Infections from external drive is another story but with a good config, this is no problem.
I've upgraded 5 PC's in the last month or so to Windows 10 from Windows 7 (friends? & family) all activated perfectly legally & had a MS digital key without me doing anything - I bought WinRAR maybe 10 years ago & it updates without any problems - When members put forward reasoned arguments as to their point of view in a decent way, it's OK - IMO It's not getting 'uppity', we have out points of view but must expect others to have a different or even similar perceptive,Steve Ballmer once called Linux a cancer. And he stated he would do anything to prevent people form using Linux or Mac. He was despised at Microsoft to such an extent that he was pushed out.
Microsoft is in a complete monopoly position give the fact that Windows is installed on nearly every single PC manufactured today. So Microsoft is the last organization that needs any help from people selling pirated, illegal keys cheaply. And yes, Microsoft does mind if you try to cheap-scate them by buying a pirated or illegal Windows upgrade license. I know as I was just involved in bringing down a Taiwanese Windows and Office product scammer.
Please do not say things that are not true. Microsoft does not want people paying a penny less than the full, published, official price. Microsoft actively hunts down and deactivates illegal Microsoft product prices. The fact of the matter is that software piracy happens on such a large scale that Microsoft is forced to focus on the most egregious offenders - such as the Chinese selling Volume Licenses as Retail. Therefore, a lot of piracy goes un-checked by the publisher.
And Microsoft has said that Windows has now become its lowest priority. Furthermore, their future model for Windows will be to charge an annual subscription.
The price sure does pay for security, productivity and most any other software. Whether it is a one-time or annual subscription fee doesn't matter. Comparing those software to games is like comparing prunes to pineapples. Security, productivity and other software doesn't have in-game micro-transactions. It's tall those add-on transactions that keep the game industry cash registers busy.
The official position of most any software publisher is that unofficial, unauthorized key sales is software piracy and the people doing it is criminal activity. It's the reason that media have been on a storm for the past decade about all the copyright infringement. Yes, that copyright is the basis of any software claims as well. It isn't just limited to media.
I am well aware that cheap Windows and MS Office licenses are being sold illegally.In the vast majority of cases, the cheap Microsoft product licenses on eBay are from scammers who sell Volume License keys from MSDN (now called a Visual Studio subscription) - which once again - Microsoft considers illegal.
In an MSDN subscription you get Volume License keys that can be activated 20 times, and you get 5 separate Retail keys that each can be activated 5 times. Sometimes the Microsoft License servers will allow keys to be activate more times than these written permissions.
Also, there is a huge black market for stolen Microsoft Volume License keys. $4 is nothing to an Australian, an American or European. But $4 to a Chinese or Indian person, it can be an entire day's wages.
most of the security soft license sold on eBay are outside the terms of the publisher; in other words they are illegal licensesI am well aware that cheap Windows and MS Office licenses are being sold illegally.
Cheap AV licenses can be legal. For example, I recently paid about $6 for a 1 year, 3 device license for ESET Internet Security. I have no reason to doubt it being legal, as I bought it from a reputable local online seller, who only sell genuine licenses.
The same seller sells OEM Windows 10 licenses for over $100.
