    Well it is a popular topic on other computer/tech message boards I go to (and not just linux ones), it seems a nice elephant in the room topic.
    I am on win 10 right now actually trying to mythbust this, but want to see the windows users POV

    I know Ralph and your a good sport but seriously, as you say some have raised concerns about the level of snooping that Microsoft say is needed. Personally I think the point is moot. If you own a computer (any computer thats connected to the internet that is), have a bank account, a telelphone and use credit cards then simply trying to hide from one source say like an operating system just seems a little like closing the gates after the horse has bolted.

    So sad but true.....
    Yet, we can keep trying. Sometimes feels like Don Quixote.
