    Which version of Office has no spying or telemetry?
    I heard Office 2016 steals your data. What about 2013 or 2010?

    Why no anti-keylogger for linux?

    I search every where there is no anti keylogger software for any linux, why? I can see linux keyloggers around.

    How are you sure Windows 7 does not spy?

    People tell me not to use Windows 10 because it spies, use Windows 7 instead.
    And avoid the W7 telemetry updates.
    But how are you sure there is no hidden spyware in the Windows 7 important security updates?

    Does Windows 8.1 spy more than Windows 7?

    I hear Windows 7 is better than Windows 10 to avoid spying from Microsoft.
    But nobody talk about how the spying of Windows 8 and 8.1 compares to Windows 7.
    Windows 7 is ending support soon. Is it better to use Windows 8.1 instead of 7, and have the same level of privacy as Windows 7?

    If you update your kernel + OS regular you're already well protected. If you feel naked, then use an Antivirus they are coming with anti keylogger.

    This thread is going to be a waste of time for anyone involved (source: your post history).

    So why are privacy buffs urging people to use Windows 7?

    I can assure you the majority are not about privacy. Its more about taking a shot at MS while jumping on the bandwagon (click bait, notoriety, fame, fun whatever). This stuff goes on with a LOT of programs, not just Windows/Office etc.

    Most people would be better off researching what telemetry is before getting hives from the fear of the unknown.
