Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

And to what end would they be doing those things? I wasn't aware that microsoft was hired out by the NSA, FBI or some other government agency...do you know something we don't know about? If so, let us see some proof... And if they were (which would certainly be kind of nuts) what interest would they...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

What you all fail to realize that now windows will be a continuously evolving (rolling model) quality control becomes of paramount importance ALL the way down the line (including the mainstream users) so the data is needed to be checked even for the end users too...Their whole system is structured n...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

I think you need to read the comments of the the ms spokesman a bit better in that article i linked to...again, they are not looking at your e-mails, photos, etc...they are looking at the data that shows them what is working properly and what is not, in order to make improvements in how the operatin...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

I'm not worried...but i don't think you should be using microsoft and windows 10 to "justify" your preference to use linux...If you prefer linux, that is fine... i like it too...in fact, used it for 6 years! Was away from windows for a LONG time...It's only because i have been very impress...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Newsgroups are where videos amd mp3s are posted...it's well known...and it isn't microsoft's job to find windows users who download from the groups and report them to various agencies/companies whatever...they would be committing suicide as a commercial enterprise if they did that...

Not sure if you were aware of it, but the ad related stuff can be turned off easily in system setttings..takes about 5 minutes...the spokesman is referring to the stuff that can't be turned off...that is what i am talking about...that stuff is NEEDED to keep the system running up to snuff...

Yes, but they are looking for system problems related to those things, not to look at (to them) boring photos on your photo app or e-mails to your girlfriend...lol It's an automated data compiling system...you think they are sitting there, pulling up your e-mails and reading them? If you do, you hav...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Agree, but things have changed a lot since vista...windows, for one thing, wasn't a rolling system then as it is now...also, they didn't have the kind of quality control for the updating like they do now...the way that works is: 1) Microsoft testing 2) Insiders Fast Ring 3) Insiders Slow ring 4) Mai...

Interesting article about the privacy issue here: http://news.softpedia.com/news/microsoft-s-joe-belfiore-collecting-windows-10-data-helps-the-ecosystem-495308.shtml If that is the case, then i am glad they do monitor the system...Windows 10 is working great and anything that helps improve it would ...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Actually, the spying you are referring to, is mostly of the nature of seeking out information on the problems being experienced by users of windows 10, which in turn is used as feedback to make improvements to the system...not to look at your photos of uncle john or read an e-mail you wrote to your ...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Windows 10, i find, is pretty easy to use and a LOT easier to use then Windows 8 because you don't go into the metro interface which is very confusing to work with...Not only do you have the comfortable and familiar start menu, but the tiles on it allow you to set up favorites or most used apps as t...

Re: Your opinions on Windows 10 so far..

Thanks richmorehave...i didn't realize you love windows 10 also...and believe me, i am not thrilled either about the privacy aspects but my enjoyment of using the OS seems to be "over-riding" the privacy business... :wink: :D
