    I really wish journalists were more responsible with their headlines.

    No, there is no "keylogger" in Windows 10, nor has there ever been one. A "keylogger" is a piece of spyware that collects information that you type in order to give someone else that information. In other words, to collect passwords, or incriminating evidence, or something of that nature. The key to this is that it's collecting it for specific use against you.

    Windows 10 does have data collection, just like virtually every modern OS does in one way or another....

    Every time you go to a website, someone, somewhere is collecting data. Be it your ISP (and every network provider in between) in the form of log files, the search engine in the form of log files and statistics (and possibly even keeping every search term you type), etc...

    If you use voice recognition features in MacOS X, iOS, Android, or Windows then what you speak is sent to the companies servers to perform the recognition in the cloud. So they have that data for every command you speak.

    When you have spelling correction enabled, everything you type is sent to the servers so it can flag words for misspellings.. it does this in Windows, Android, iOS, etc..

    Windows is not doing anything other OS's aren't doing, but the difference is that Microsoft is being more up front about it, and covering their butt legally speaking.
