    Can you justify this statement?
    I doubt it as it's utter bollocks.

    Being a curious sort, I've been looking around and I think this is suspicious?
    Settings>Privacy> Under windows permissions I see everything is turned on by default. I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box BUT I'm finding the descriptions of each "topic" a bit confusing.. See my screen shot. Any advice here?, Thanks Dave BTW I love this place
    Windows 10 surely share data with msoft, for many purposes, it is a "cloud OS".
    Compromised is not an accurate term, it is not compromised it is how it is supposed to work,
    if you do not understand what it means and how it works possibly ms is taking advantage of you,
    and many people will tell you that it is not true and will refer to the tin foil hat meme and will assure
    you that "ms is not spying"; it is true ms is not spying, but this has little to do with privacy.
    if you value privacy win 10 is not a "good choice" for an OS.

    I do not believe so.

    More accurately let's say it is a "cloud oriented OS".

    That I'll agree with. Wait for Windows 11, it'll be the Home version of Azure. A monitor, KB, mouse and some modem/router/thin client gizmo. Then your only privacy will be a dark closet.

    This is why i've put quotes around the cloud OS meaning it is kinda cloud os, many services
    are indeed based on cloud services to work, like search displaying bing search results.
    I think that any tech savvy person will simply agree this simple fact, unless he wants to feed
    a factious and useless debate.

    I'm glad I was able to express myself suitably, thanks for your intellectual honesty.

    As MS Win-10 comes out of the box, or the PC comes out of the store, you're not Un-Safe, as long as you don't connect to the internet.
    But plug in that LAN cable or activate your WiFi, and everything changes.

    I use many Batch Files and Scripts to fix some of the Security Holes, but there are still a bunch of things that need to be done, from the keyboard. It usually takes me about an hour, to go through everything necessary to close up all the Security Holes. It's almost like plugging up all the holes in a screen door.

    I've been called a nut, because of my intense hatred of anything that negatively affects either the security or productivity of my computer. So I work very hard, to make sure that my computer (or of my customers) is as safe and productive as I can possibly make it.
    Out of the box, W-10 is UNSAFE and only less than 50% efficient. I can fix that!

    Once Win-10 is made SAFE, and tweaked and tuned for maximum efficiency, and user friendliness, it's actually a pretty good, and stable OS.
    I figure that since we're stuck with it, I might as well make it as SAFE, Efficient, and User Friendly as possible.

    Good Luck to you!

    What are these security holes you are plugging. Can you list some of them?
    Many privacy setting can be turned off during a fresh install. there is a page in the setup
    to turn off most of them.

    Do you by any chance doubt that Mr TechnoMage from tenforums.com possesses multiple zerodays that he patches with bat-files? What's unbelievable about that?!?!?!
