After reading these Windows 10 privacy issues:
I decided to make my Windows 10 as private as it allows. There are instructions for doing so here:
These instructions include privacy options that are selected during Windows 10 installation, and other options that are selected after it is installed. Are there privacy options for Windows 10 that can be selected only during installation?
My ultimate goal is to migrate to Ubuntu because of these privacy issues. I would run windows applications under it using Wine, and for those that cannot run under Wine, I would run them under Windows 10 in Virtual Box running under Ubuntu. For now I do not have a computer that runs Ubuntu. I am considering installing Windows 7 on the computer I now have, instead of dealing with all the Windows 10 privacy settings. I expect Windows 7 to be more private than Windows 10 can ever be tweaked to be.
