a bit of a dud

I watched the whole series with passion and I loved the story-line, the characters, especially Don, Roger and Peggy, they are great. I feel sad that I won't be seeing them again, when you are engrossed in a series/story, you feel connected to the characters and the separation is sad. The last episode was a bit of a dud though. Although I understand the message the writer(s) wanted to pass, I feel a little bit cheated. It's like he's saying: the 60s were ugly and dirty and the final episode which starts the 70s washes all this up. It shouldn't have been that way. But there is a consistency and it isn't a coincidence that the show ends with the peace and love ad of Coca Cola. Yes, as others have said, this was intended for the viewers to infer that the smile on Don's face is his creative mind still at work and he would come up with the ad based on his final experience. But aren't we tired of shows that end vaguely? I had to read online reviews and interviews with Jon Hamm and Mathiew Weiner to confirm that it was indeed their intended message. It's a pity. But that doesn't diminish the quality of the series as a whole. It's one of the best I've seen in a long time and I have learned a lot from it. Thank you to the writer(s), the director(s) and all the actors. It's been a hell of a ride.
