    Win 10 TP: EULA agreement...scary


    I hope this is only for the preview to massage the new OS, seems pretty invasive.

    I wonder if this is why Symantec Endpoint Protection wouldn't install on it?

    I must be confused.
    I totally expected Microsoft to sneak and peak in my use of W-10. They are looking for input from ever thing including but not exclusive to user feedback.
    Microsoft not only needs to know what we want but they also need to know what is working and what isn't.
    Just knowing what programs are being used by us can be very useful to Microsoft.
    I had no dreams of testing W-10 and being incognito at the same time.

    Whether this sneak and peak will continue on the finished version we will have to wait and see.

    I don't find this spooky, unusual, or of any real concern.
    The public outcry would prohibit this in a commercial product. Microsoft is well aware of this.

    But the Windows 10 trial is not a commercial product. It is unfinished, has bugs, and has terms and conditions of use that are different from that of a commercial product. Microsoft is giving the public the opportunity to see this unfinished product and provide feedback to aid in development to make it a better product when it is finally released.

    In the early days before Internet access was widespread this opportunity was granted to only a select group of individuals. They were expected to test the software with a variety of hardware platforms and applications. They were then expected to provide detailed reports on their findings. If they failed to do this they would not be invited to take part the next time around.

    Microsoft is now giving this opportunity to a much wider audience. The upside to this is that there will be much larger and diverse volume of information available. The downside is that the quality of the reports will be much lower. Most non-technical people have no real idea of how to report a problem. Automated data collection helps to provide the needed information.

    If you don't like the terms of usage of the Windows 10 trial then don't download and use it.

    Well yes, exactly. It isn't compulsory.

    That's a WAP service, used for mobile WAP applications... it has nothing to do with "spying". This functionality has actually been in Windows since at least XP, by the way, but this service seems to be related to a service called "cellcore" to do with cellular networks.
