    The Inquire usually has good articles, since I use Adblock Plus I don't see these "ads".

    I don't see those ads.

    I generally ignore ads but two of them looked very interesting.

    First of all I was using Edged, hence no add-ons:)
    Second it was the irritating type of adds: the grey-out-pop-over-are you sure you want to leave the page- type.
    But as for the site itself looked to be pretty outdated too, and full of click bait(not any different than most other sites though).
    But I did re-read the article, though(ah-hem! using another browser). Basically he's saying what I think, if you believe what Microsoft is saying, good for you and keep on using Win10, if you don't, do something about it, but stop mumbling & murmuring....

    In Today's world nothing is free. If yes there may be some T&C along with it. Data collection is a part of analytics.

    All this noise about what Microsoft is doing, yet no one seems to bat an eye about Google doing the exact same thing (and likely even worse).

    How do you know people aren't making noise about Google? If I wanted to complain about Google I would see if they had a forum and complain there and not on a forum about Win 10.

    You can remain mostly anonymous using Google chrome or Chromium without using a Google account. You won't be able to use apps though. You can install Chromium on windows using the chocolatey package manager. Chromium doesn't sandbox flash to my knowledge.

    Perhaps you should start a thread titled, "Are Google a bunch of jerks?" and see how many comments get posted (Pro & Con).

    Worse than that, this thread is specifically about MS data collection (not Apple, Google, etc.).

    Remember:
    There is 'One' far greater than MS, Google and others combined reading your emails and tracking your sordid surfing habits!
