Very nice collection!  8)

Run CurrPorts Portable (download almost at the bottom of the page) on Windows 10 and set it to "Log changes". Do some research after a night of logging while not using the OS, draw your own conclusions. You really don't need M$ to say what they do or don't...

My conclusion:   Windows 10 is Adware and Spyware!

Disclaimer: GNULINUX is a known Windows 10 hater... but it's an informed/funded opinion...  ;)

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all "Windows users" are like this but the ones where it sinks in in a meaningful way tend to be sticking with 7/8.1 (and probably don't have Facebook accounts).

I'm also a huge fan of Conky Manager, it makes things that much easier!  8)

I do this shiz for a living.   8)
I think your last reply made that obvious!  ;D

PS: I hope this was free service?

And for my small part, I'm glad you like it!  :)

Example:  I was looking at the apps installed by default on '10'.  One of them was a game called Cookie Crunch or whatevs.  I clicked it, just to see what would happen, and ... by Question #2 in the agreement, I could see that you had to allow them access to all your personal data, including all your contacts, and so forth.  I quickly uninstalled it.
Moot point since you said "yes" to the almighty M$ EULA... by simply installing Windows 10...

You see, that's the whole problem. If every ISP (or other service) includes such policies, you have nowhere to run!
No internet, no OS, no software and no hardware without the "yes"!  ;)

You can't lose something you never had.  The FCC rule wasn't scheduled to be in effect until October, 2017. 

Interesting point of view...


I have a (semi-rhetorical) question about the topic title .. would this include allowing Microsoft to sell user data gathered by Windows telemetry ?
Doesn't even need to be included since the famous new M$ EULA... where they state they may share "anonymous" data with their "partners"!

@ VinDSL : I don't get the part about fake news... Doesn't that still mean that ISP's can share your data?

Didn't you all know that you must run Windows 10 in VirtualBox AND without an internet connection...  :P

To be honest... Windows 10 isn't even worth the space it takes in VirtualBox!

Greets!  ;)
