    If you are at all concerned about the amount of information Windows 10 collects, that's nothing compared to what participants in the Feedback Lab tell Microsoft. From the FAQ link above...
    What kinds of data will Microsoft collect?
    When you participate in the Feedback Lab Program, three types of data collected from your computer:
    1. Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) ...
    2. Office Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) ...
    3. Additional data collection

    The following list describes some examples of additional data collection our software performs:
    Windows settings and usage, such as the number of user accounts on the computer and the view settings for Control Panel (that is, if you use the default Category view or the Classic view to display Control Panel).
    Details about your computer hardware, such as processor type and speed (as well as the number of processors), system memory, video memory, and other hardware configuration information.
    File and folder information, such as the number of files and folders located in common places (for example, in Documents).
    Which programs you open (for example, which application you use to read your e-mail).
    Changes you make to your hardware or software.
    Problems you encounter, such as application crashes.
    The information on how customers are using Windows 10 Technical Preview.

    Thanks for the info. At least it is not a scam. Just Microsoft's way of collecting more data.
