After reading the pinned post about the Win 10 Privacy Statement (abbreviated) ... I didn't have the patience to go through it all myself, and I'm sure that they count on that, I conclude that there is NO privacy ... at all.  This is Big Brother at his best.  Spying applications and a KEY LOGGER.  Are you kidding me?

Yes, that most definitely is what msft count on. The vast majority of windows users will NEVER have read a word of any privacy statement....be it for win 10 or any other version of windows for that matter.

 

It is about TRUST.

 

We (we as in the general population) actually have an expectation of "fair play" from those who are in a position to alter our daily lives.

 

I can hear the cry now...usually from those who are "locked" in their thoughts re win X....and are unable or unwilling to think outside of that particular square....."You should read the privacy statement and the legal mumbo jumbo of the eula etc etc "....then if you sill doint like it....you can rack off and go elsewhere.....we dont really care cause the majority of people just go click click click and we have got them !!!

 

We are not "allowed" to refer to the contents as 'spyware' ....because technically....(as one member here constantly tells us).....it is not spyware ......why?...'cause you gave all this power to us (msft) when you did the 'click" thing.

 

We are then reminded that the OS is free. How cowardly/unreasonable/ungrateful are we ???!!! ......in other words the use of a "guilt complex" plays a part as a 'marketing tool".....how quaint !

 

All over world life is lived by different people in different ways......however the "boss" in the family is usually the dad...sometimes the mum..sometimes a combination of the two. In the "bigger' world the boss is usually the parliament/police/corporation head etc etc....you get my drift. In ALL cases there is a presumption that the "boss" will not usurp the powers that have been vested in him/her/it.......and when that power is abused....then disintegration takes place.....sometimes over a very long period of time....but it takes place all the same.  Just ask any family that have been torn apart by dysfunction.

 

I ramble.

 

In short....I agree with Article_86

I always have to wonder...what so many words by a banned member...literally have nothing to do with Win 10 performance, issues, or resolution of problems.  A SpeakEasy topic in the Win 10 forum, IMO.
