Windows 10 anybody using it?

I ain't going to to touch it. It appears that Microsoft is slipping in similar telemetary to W7 through updates and I assume W8 as well.

For some reason, and praise dog, my system does not recognise windows updates and won't allow them, but I trust these mofos as far as I can kick Bill Gates. I have W7 which won't even allow me to personalise the desktop. Cocksuckers!

"Every time you open an image in Windows Ten, it informs Microsoft. Creepy as hell and hard to believe, but the packet capture proves it.

I thought at first this might be happening every time you launch a program, which is perhaps marginally better, so I launched some other programs too and didn't observe any traffic. It was only after making this video that I came up with another theory: It does make the suspicious encrypted connection upon launching calculator. Why does MS care how often I run calculator? No idea, but I think it might be something to do with both the image preview and calculator being new 'metro' interface, store apps. It might be that MS simply wishes to be immediately informed every time you run any application. That's not much of an improvement on my earlier 'spy on your images' theory."

Welcome to the future. And to allay any suspicions, this information is not informed to a human being but a bot program with infinitely greater processing capability. You're welcome!

I guess what concerned me about W10 the most yes you are supposed to be able to turn off alot of the calling home/spying if you like. But is it really turned off and what else is going on that they are not admitting too. Sure I believe there are back doors in most of the recent Windows OS but damn this one seems to very intrusive. W7 is the last OS from Microsoft that I liked so guess that is what I will be staying with.

I imagine in another 20 years, when they're getting ready to release Windows 19, we'll all be saying, "Oh how I wish we could just go back to Windows 10!!"

I've been looking into it. Hate messing with that stuff though. This laptop is running just fine. Just rebuilt and wiped bigger laptop - full of virus! I know where it/they came from too.

Smile I saw you changed it..it gave me a chuckle. And of course I knew it had to be you who did such a thing. Sometimes no reaction is the best reaction if some one is pulling your pigtails....grasshopper!

Most people assume the little black guy is the reason I use the Webster handle...its not but its still cool as I liked the little dude.

Of course you did. I was just being MR Obvious. You should see what I did to Elisabeth`s av. I`ve messed with very few avs, but sometimes it`s hard to resist. Then again, posters are always free to undo my meddling, but don`t usually want to.
