Came across this article and it espouses what many Windows users feel toward MS and Win X.

From the article

Microsoft is committed to customer privacy and ensuring that customers have the information and tools they need to make informed decisions. We listened to feedback from our customers and evolved our approach to the upgrade process. Windows 10 continues to have the highest satisfaction of any version of Windows.

 

"Windows 10 continues to have the highest satisfaction of any version of Windows."  I wonder how Microsoft came to this conclusion?

 At best MS is guilty of poor communication.  As the article points out, they haven't told us exactly what they're collecting, how they can say they keep anonymous, or how long they keep it.  The question I wonder about is what if the government decides they want that data?  

 Beyond the telemetry, they put out this major Anniversary Update with saying anything about when people can expect to get it.  This causes mass confusion on the part of folks who haven't gotten it yet.  True, you can always manually install it, but most people won't do that.

 Bottom line for me; lack of communication causes confusion and distrust.  It looks like MS is going to have to learn that the hard way.  :(


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
