Windows 10 Is Possibly the Worst Spyware Ever Made

12 posts in this topic

The usual bumps of an OS launch are understandable and forgivable, but some of the terms of the end user service agreement for Windows 10 put the NSA to shame.
Microsoft is already getting heat after it was found that Windows 10 was being auto-downloaded to user PCs without warning, and more seriously, that it was using the Internet connections of Windows 10 users to deliver Windows 10 and updates to others.

Apparently Win 7 & 8 will get the same telemetry update that will hound 10.

Of course, Android & Apple i* whatever probably aren't any better.

My WindBlows7 Dell XPS laptop was screaming rape !

In a auto update it downloaded the link and app to upgrade to W10 . I did not find this amusing !! And shut down auto updates .

I have it fixed by clearing the app .

Did I forget to mention that Windows 95 was a virus that took 3 whole months to write?  Some virus...  It was even thought to be a virus by some of the anti-virus programs of the time.
