    Who cares if MS is watching this forum.... I surely don't care.

    They could be watching, but I'd be willing to bet most of them downloaded the leaks along with us :p

    We do care because we want Microsoft to see what we like about 8.1, what we don't like, what's working OK, and what's not working well. And then we want Microsoft to send this info to their developers so they can improve the product.

    We would not get DMCA takedown requests if they don't read here. Hence we have made our rules. Goal is to receive as less as possible.
    What is M$? It is a huge company with a lot of employees sitting all over the world.

    Also there are M$ certified persons.
    M$ responsible persons.

    But finally all are humans.

    I am sure they evaluate closely if MDL can be harm or benefit to them. And they take what can be useful from here. :D


    The far more important question is: Is M$ windows trustable after the NSA scandal and are your personal data safe when using windows(8)?
    In other words: M$ watching YOU @home?

    I don't know if MS has people reading MDL or other sites, but according to my friend DMCA are either issued by their robots, or if they receive a outside complaint(or tip-off), otherwise, nobody gives a sh*t. :D

    Thats deep man.. To deep i have brown marks in my pants.. What if they were watching out webcams! They might even know about that odd fetish. lol

    What if Microsoft owns this forum and runs it and all the staff are Bill Gates kids?

    I hear Microsoft have the largest collection of cat pictures known to man, they are leeching from from all of us!

    Shouldn't be paranoia underestimated these days. Of course M$ and "others" including your government are watching us, every single day that goes by everybody is losing their privacy and basic rights. Are you naive or what? This world is for the RICH and POWERFUL people, otherwise you're a simple mortal.

    Who do you think leaks those keys anyway?
    I believe M$ is doing that with a purpose.
    In countries like mine, not a lot of people can afford to buy genuine operating system. So naturally they all go for other means of obtaining an OS.
    Regaring privacy, I do think that now with Windows 8.1 there is almost no privacy at all. Everything is synced (using tiles) and all social virtual life is stored on M$ servers.

    They can't turn over what they don't have.
    Has anyone figured out how to block that MarkMonitor built-in spytool thing they got going?
    Perhaps certain firewall programs?

    According to your public profile you are living in the UK. The kings of observation and storage (worse than the US). When I had been to London 1992 I already wondered how a city can install that many cameras on streets and public places.

    This here is not about paranoia of the one who could be observed! It is about the insane behaviour of those who observe (their paranoia)! Institutions with a poor self confidence and the feeling to be incomplete and vulnerable ARE observing to get a seemingly increase of power.

    And it seems you have become blind on that eye being on a public camera all the years already when moving through the streets of the UK.....

    M$ passed infos to the NSA how to break encryption of skype webcam chats. This is a fact that reasons the question of: Are you @home probably watched....


    Just my two cents...:)

    Yep, they could watch and learn feedback, but I am afraid they won't do so... :)

    Of course M$ is watching us,they use our help to make their OS as uncrackable & stable as possible...they took out Daz loader with Windows 8 & now the KMS activators & the Windows Store crack with Windows 8.1

    we are their free beta testers...they leak builds on purpose each time so that we can give them valuable feedback before they release the public betas :D

    - If you can't afford Windows, then get Linux
    - None of that affects you for the most part if you don't use a MS account or use any Modern UI apps

    Don't hook a webcam and mic to your computer, and don't worry about it :p Might be poor advice to people who rely on both of these though, or who have AIO systems like laptops...

    I personally don't worry about it though. I don't use my laptop wondering if MS is just monitoring my mic, or if my webcam is turning on without the LED being on. If I was really concerned, I'd just use Linux.
