    EFF blasts Microsoft over Windows 10 privacy concerns

    Looks like the "Privacy" concerns are escalating on MS's policy of not disclosing what they actually collect from Win 10.

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation has accused Microsoft of disregarding user choice and privacy with Windows 10. In a scathing editorial, EFF employee Amul Kalia calls on Microsoft to "come clean with its user community" over a growing number of Windows 10 privacy concerns. "Windows 10 sends an unprecedented amount of usage data back to Microsoft," explains Kalia, noting that enabling Cortana increases the amount of data passed to Microsoft. Privacy advocates have argued that Windows 10 sends back location, text input, voice input, touch input, websites you visit, and other telemetry data to Microsoft.

    Yup, a day late and a dollar short but that's how bureaucracy's work. I doubt that their "scathing editorial" will change much, but one can hope.

    LOL, it will take people a while to get used to a cloud based OS. Eventually they will learn how great it really is.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
