    The windows response was already posted yesterday - post #147 in a thread about privacy and spying. But it's ok you started a new thread, was just pointing you to one.
    Just because MS doesn't spy on your info, any agency can get MS to hand over everything on your PC, so no one cares about MS, it's the idea that they have no right to see or collect data.

    Was just kinda of letting you know, the mods have removed or moved hundreds of posts about privacy, but I really don't have a clue if they would move this one.

    I don't know exactly what you mean but I didn't see any post like mine posted before 8 PM yesterday my time ... whatever was posted, to me the article was interesting enough to make it public here on MDL

    Removing the start Menu in Windows 8 was a BIG MISTAKE - Later M$ Realized that and presented Windows 10 (for FREE) ;)

    Collecting Private data in Windows 10 is again a BIG MISTAKE - When will M$ stop making Mistakes ? Later When they will realize we might get Windows 11 (for FREE of course! or may be PAID - for Privacy concern people). :D

    If M$ keep making mistakes and rectify in the newer version along with new mistake - they will be "Digging their own graves".

    But the problem is - Most of us ADDICTED to WINDOWS now !:worthy:

    I wonder why M$ encrypts those data they are collecting.

    It would be a far different situation if M$ would ask me about. They simply could collect a (monthly for instance) report in clear text where I can read all the contents and then I could voluntarily hit submit.

    Regardless if people find it useful that M$ collects data (for a better OS development) or not, the fact that they encrypt those and now try to downplay what they do assures my mistrust even more.
    Go away, M$! :)

    Do you see what you said, you said, you posted the article even before this one. I posted a link to what you posted, your post 147, then you come along and say- even before, so I guess I don't understand what that mean, because to me, even before means that you posted it on another thread earlier.


    What I do know, is I linked the article to you as being the first one to post it.

Did I harm you in any way? did I harm any member in this forum? Come on, say it load and I will listen. what is it all about to fight against old members? what is it? is other mind except yours not accepted on MDL? if so, tell me why? I'm tired upon clowns, believe me, very tired, very very tired:eek:
