1. As I already said, defragging is overrated, no major slow down of Windows will occur. The time and effort spent defragging will never be recovered by the miniscule performance improvement. 2. I spent about 50-60 hours on the internet last week and downloaded dozens of programs. I got ZERO trojans or pieces of malware. I suggest you review your internet habits. 3. In what way is the NSA vicious? I have nothing to hide from the NSA and they don't care about me. Conspiracy theory? Paranoia? 4. I can't remember the last time I got a BSOD. In my job as a developer I work constantly with pre-Alpha software yet still don't encounter BSODs. Windows forums are not a good indicator of what problems I will encounter since most of the stuff that people post questions about is due to their own user error or general lack of Windows knowledge. 5. Glad to hear there's a new function called no reboot in Linux. BTW, not every little update in Windows requires a reboot. 6. I didn't say I don't do things to keep safe, I just said I don't worry about it because I'm not paranoid.
