Spotify uses up ~1/5 of the width of the Linux desktop app to tell me I should "find out what my friends are playing".
Apart from the question that why would I care and why I couldn't just ask them, why do I have to see an ad--and this large of an ad--as a paying customer?
When you pay companies like YouTube or Spotify you expect to no longer see ads, but instead they just use the most of the freed up ad space for themselves and that's somehow "not ads", I guess...
