    Don't upgrade to 10. Seriously though, I don't like being spied on but Windows 10 is not the only thing collecting data about us. Somethings can be turned off but not all of it. I'm not that concerned about MS misusing my data. Not knowing for sure exactly what is being saved I'm concerned more about what info is available if MS was to get hacked. Even though I don't like it I'm not going to stop using Win 10. I will continue to complain about the data collecting though. I believe in the old saying, The squeaky will gets the grease. If enough people complain maybe MS will give us the option to turn more of it off.

    I wonder how effective tools like SpyBot beacon are. I have used it to patch the leaks for spying and have done various other edits, such as removed Cortana, etc.

    When I check my ports and use Wireshark, I do not see any info leaving my computer with this being done.

    But I have read that MS has back doors that cannot be detected if you will or may send the data at random times when it knows I am not using the computer.

    I am using the LTSB 2015 version, supposedly there is not as much telemetry and I have it set to 0. Which is not available in the other versions of Win10.

    personally, i dont really care what "data" MS gets from my pc since the data isnt personal at all, its all analytical data.
    its not any different when you install certain android apps or apple apps, they too collect analytical data and send it off.
    if MS is "collecting" data that is irrelevant to the product itself, i am quite sure everyone will know about it and that will most certainly hurt their bottom line.
    windows 10 behaves more like android, if youre an android expert, then you have a general idea what "data" is being collected on windows 10.
    mix android with how google, aol, yahoo and bing behave into the mix and you got win10.
