Slate almost immediately dubbed Windows 10 a “privacy nightmare,” because “By default, Windows 10 gives itself the right to pass loads of your data to Microsoft’s servers, use your bandwidth for Microsoft’s own purposes, and profile your Windows usage.” …
I haven’t updated to Windows 10, even though I continually get a pop-up inviting me to do so. Since the daily updates on Windows 8 are driving me crazy, I haven’t wanted to subject myself to potential updates every hour with Windows 10.
It appears Microsoft has an answer for that, as the article indicates, automatically updating my Windows 8 with Windows 10 features. Perhaps Microsoft wouldn’t be so scary if they weren’t involved with helping the federal government spy on people.
And Microsoft can use my bandwith? WTF?
