Windows 10 is known to come with a lot of telemetry and other “features” that reduce privacy in order to work as “software as a service”. Thankfully, there’s an effort to ameliorate this…

    Piracy? Sounds like Windows is the criminal here. Sure, older computers got a free upgrade, but most people buy new computers, and are therefore paying for Windows. M$ doesn't have the moral ground to spy on us. And Gates is part of whatever's really going on with CoViD. He belongs in jail next to Biden and Harris. (Yes, the DemocRats stole the election.)

    i removed all spy ware and junk from my windows 10 install disk - you must never update your installation because microsoft are criminals and they will inject more spyware and backdoor trojans into your system. before you go online you must download simple firewall and disable windows version of firewall so they can send your data to their hq.

    Hold on How can you say ... OK BOOMER ENJOY YOUR OUTLOOK Linus..... You're a smart guy, You've clearly proven that over the years and yes.. You did actually show a picture of a boomer and not someone of my generation, Gen X, Which is commonly the case when stupid people of today say Boomer but really are referring to people like me. in any case, you didn't do that but.. here's the issue Boomer's didn't use Outlook, For that matter they didn't even use Outlook Express, Boomers were the one's that were computer illiterate for the most part The majority of my clients, When i asked them if they wanted outlook express or outlook or even thunderbird, they usually just said they are happy to login via their browser or as they put it "I'm happy to login via google" LOL and they were happy to access Gmail or Hotmail through a browser so yeah.. in my experience, Boomers didn't really use Mail client Applications a lot unless their work forced them into it also.... Mail client applications are superior to web based mail. i mean.. if you use mail for basic use, i suppose you can use both but if you use it the way i use it , where you have literally over 50 smart folders if not maybe 100, the web based thing doesn't cut it although i do agree, NO ONE USES WINDOWS MAIL why would you

    No, Linus. You shouldn't switch to Mac. With OS "Big Sur", Apple now has implemented spying. Where Apple literally tracks everything you do. And you cannot prevent it any longer, as you could in the pre- "Big Sur" OS version. That's why I name "Big Sur" just Big Surveilance. Apple watching & logging EVERY APP YOU OPEN with new OS.

    No Windows Update? It's insane. Everything, starting from just any game, or even a game engine like GZDoom needs regular updates. Removing the update feature is shooting oneself in the foot. BTW, the telemetry allows the developers to fix problems in a way impossible without it. So - if you're happy with bugs - disable or remove updates. But if you're a gamer you should already know better how much of the difference can updates make. Or how annoying is having those bugs for years before the devs are able to fix them. The most difficulty with fixing software bugs is "it works for me". I'm a software developer. Things always work on my computer. I don't use telemetry, so I have to ASK user to describe the problems in a very detailed way. They cooperate as good as they can. They really actively help me to fix problems. But there are actually 2 problems with that: 1) it takes much time, 2) it requires an active effort from users. With some basic telemetry you can shorten the diagnosis and fixing time, and get the problem fixed without making an active effort.

    Windows 10 is just peace and quiet, and something is missing that Microsoft has not yet put in it. In the add or remove programs menu, the user should have the following option to check: "Protect the uninstallation of this program or application by password". Access to files in the program files folder and all its roots is automatically blocked. It's the only thing missing from Windows that you don't have.

    This is why I hate Microsoft so much. They've tied up Windows 10 so much that you can't really do anything without needing an internet connection EVENTUALLY. Heck, I've run into the issue of not being able to type anything in the search bar to look for something in the start menu because the store is unable to perform a specific update. It can't do that update because I worked hard at getting that particular copy of Windows to not phone home.

    The lack of intuitive ui for everyday professional use is unfixable in windows, unfortunately.
