    the mere fact that they are prepared to jump on m$` telemetry bandwagon is enough for me;there will be a little `mistake` that prevents the opt-out option from working, without users noticing, more likely than not.

    Everything that MS collects is pretty standard stuff.

    Pretty standard? Defined by yourself? LMAO.

    Here is my definition: based on its behavior alone, Microsoft = Giant trojan keylogger

    Canonical telemetry does not compare with that of Microsoft. The information Canonical wish to collect is reasonable, any info that could benefit future development is fine with me.

    You post has nothing to do with the topic/contents of this thread, and is a total waste of people's time. If you have a different idea about what I said, simply state your opinion based on facts, and please be on topic.

    i liked this because of one reason.
    you will publish the info requested by canonical which is nothing but this telemetry command.
    echo "I consent that cannonical can have my root p\"ASSWORD\" on host: $HOSTNAME on machine: `hostname -f` " | mail -s "Here you go with my rootie! on host: $HOSTNAME on machine: `hostname -f`" mark.shutterworth@canonical.com
    :eek:
    i thought linux was a free spirit OS with free source code and everything. this post just made my day. muhahaha!
    sorry for being mean/sarcastic.
    p.s. there is something like this in debian too. its called popularity-contest
    and i have gladly added it to my blocklist
    Package: popularity-contest

    Huh? Do you have any business sense at all? How do you think a free OS is provided? Love and fresh air? and this idiotic sh*t about passwords is just FUD. Think before you post.

    Welcome to the digital age. The NSA, CIA, FBI, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Russian and Chinese hackers, plus thousands of other entities all want your personal data. Whether you make it easy for them or hard for them is entirely up to you. And if you can't handle that fact, stop using the internet!

    What companies say and do are 2 different things entirely, banks for example. Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

    Kubuntu (KDE version of Ubuntu) has no telemetry. Maybe try that. :)
