Title: Is Windows 10 Spying on Us?
Post by: mcinn on November 04, 2015, 04:46:13 pm
If you're a Windows 10 user and you pay attention to what Microsoft is doing, you may have come to the conclusion that your core data is being collected and sent home. Such theories are no longer theories, since Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President Joe Belfiore recently made a statement that cleared out previous suspicions:

’In the cases where we’ve not provided options, we feel that those things have to do with the health of the system. In the case of knowing that our system that we’ve created is crashing, or is having serious performance problems, we view that as so helpful to the ecosystem and so not an issue of personal privacy, that today we collect that data so that we make that experience better for everyone.’


Well, not everyone, exactly, since it's now known that Microsoft doesn't treat equally enterprise and home users. More on the topic: http://sensorstechforum.com/microsoft-admits-to-windows-10-core-data-collection/

Logically, one may wonder why is it that Windows 10 is being pushed so persistently. It turns out that Microsoft has set the goal of at least 1 billion Win10 devices in the next couple of years! When you put 2 and 2 together, you may just find yourself in a loop of conspiracy-driven thoughts...

Is Windows 10 what you expected it to be?
