    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    if they do not know what your doing or what you like to do, how they gonna know what ad's to put where ??
    that why they track you - advertising ...

    they gave you the OS so you could purchase subscriptions to Apps..

    If I want to see ads - I watch TV if I want to hear ads, I'll listen to the radio..

    Nothing more annoying then ads downloading and playing a movie - while your reading the news..

    And to make matters worst is MS is now pushing the same windows 10 Telememtry to windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 users..

    Windows 8.1, Win10Pro

    Already, another thread is degrading into Privacy Issue disputes -- sorry state of affairs for what used to be a stellar forum...

    Is ANYONE surprised by the rapid adoption rate of Win10? MS pushed it to folks -- so they didn't have to track it down and manually download it. MS made it available for free -- so folks wouldn't even have to pay the $40 that Win8 cost. And MS's own Compatibility Checker told nearly everyone that their old PCs were 100% compatible with Win10. And, the Upgrade tool told everyone that they could easily get their old, working, version of Windows back.

    With a sales campaign like this, only a very small minority of the existing Win7/8/8.1 community would refuse the Upgrade.

    So, a media announcement like the title of this thread is basically "non-news".

    Yes they did as long as it was within 30 days. MS is NOT using Windows 10 to spy on anyone. They are NOT the government anymore than Google is and Google uses the data they collect for marketing research and Google Chrome now has a 60% market share of Browsers. MS wants that or a higher share on The OS market. Windows 10 is already way ahead of Windows 8 or 8.1 but still behind Windows 7. A few more months and they will be ahead of all of them.

    I think most Win 7 and 8 users are holding off for the first few months to see bugs worked out of it . MS really needs to make removing apps easier for people , the biggest complaints i here from people is the pita it is to remove things they don't want .

    Every app should be easy to uninstall and not grayed out while others are easier to remove . Needing to use powershell is a disgrace and those powershell commands do not always work . I have a thread in the system apps section to prove it that nobody knows how to fix apparently.

    The people i talk to would have much less of an issue with Win 10 if those issues were fixed.

    A few more months, I seriously doubt that.

    Can't you stop telling ppl not to talk about privacy, it's a big issue and still ignored by ms.. I don't care if your privacy isn't that important to you but sadly it is to ppl who are concerned about it.

    I think that Lee was being sarcastic and not trying to insult anyone. Some people here need to lighten up a bit.

    *Purple for sarcasm.
