    A lot of info is subject to an NDA. Non Disclosure Agreement. I had to sign one as part of being an MVP. That being said, I'm not privy to any of that info so I couldn't comment on it even if I wanted to. I dare say there are quit a few people that have no intension of spoiling a good thing by violating their NDA and pissing Microsoft off.
    My MVP NDA expired some time ago now (cancer kept me too inactive to re-award), but we are outside of MSFT anyway and would never be privvy to exactly how most of this stuff works. Especially not anything touching the security of data gathering.

    It is what it is, and Microsoft isn't the only company that does it. Just thought I'd mention it for those that may not know it happens. Some of the secrecy is because your not allowed to say anything. I've seen bits and bytes on Yammer that answered some questions but I couldn't talk about it until somebody else leaked it first.
    Personally I think that it's correct to follow the NDA. Working as a Temp in different companies the last 10 years, I've had to sign a bunch of them, and I would never tell another firm or outsider anything confidential. They pay me to keep my mouth shut, it's just part of the contract I signed. I drive my forklift and keep quiet.

    Will stay with Win 10. But would caution folks ready to upgrade that updating their divers may take as long as the install.

    A business enterprise such as Microsoft spends immense amounts of time, effort and funds on creating innovative ideas, developing them and then marketing the product of their genius.

    To be successful, the user of the product must benefit from it. The financial rewards belong to that business enterprise which created and developed the product.

    As I have previously stated, I had a great deal of difficulty moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10. It was my fault because I did not heed the advice of knowledgeable computer people. However, once I did successfully install Windows 10, I have found it to be more than I expected.

    It is a fine OS and provides me with all of the tools and applications to make my computing productive, interesting and enjoyable.

    Many have a different opinion. Let them then move to another system. I wish them good luck.

    With all the loopholes, potholes, and sink holes in Windows 10, there is no way in heck, that I want that thing running on my PC as my everyday OS. I do have copies of it running on several laptops, for testing purposes, so I can learn how to make it safer, and more user friendly, for my customers, but it will never run on my main PC. That's just a fact of life!

    Cheers Mates!

    No real choice but to stay with Windows 10, either I embrace change and get on with it or I would be stuck in the past running MS-DOS 6.22!

    There is plenty of other choices but that been hashed over in other threads. Yes, I use windows 10 but not as often as I normally would.

    True but when (like myself) you work in the IT Services industry you either embrace change or get another job in another line of work!

    Here's something I just run into at: http://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonke...rtner=yahootix
    Excellent Find!

    But why am I not Surprised and because Windows 10 is so nice to use, I wonder how many will be lulled into a false sense of Security.
