Yup, I agree... In all honesty though, I don't really get what all of this "spying" is going to do for companies like Microsoft, Facebook etc?. What are they spying/collecting really and at what purpose/what are they doing with all this information they secretly gather from their users?...

They barely take any information. Certainly less than all the other big companies. They use this data to improve there services and in the case of Google/FB/Twitter/social media/Amazon in general, they use it to make money off targeted ads and other things... MS should be the least of your worries.

Right, so from what I understand by your post now... They just collect certain data that is targeted for ads?. Not like personal information, what you have on your PC, what your watching, how much porn you've got etc etc. I guess you get where I'm getting at here?...

lol

Microshaft know what's on your system they also get just as much data as Google does they also have a crap ton of IP address that are always phoning home.

People trying to say oh Microshaft collects less data than Google, Twitter & Facepoo there full of crap.

I people try and use this version of Windows and Microshaft finds out they can easy screw up your Windows install and if that happens i'll be laughing my ass off when it does.

As a software dev that deploys software that also remotely logs statistics, i can entirely see why Microsoft collects data. With the complexity that a piece of software like windows would have trying to troubleshoot and implement new features would be next to impossible without the power of huge data sets to tell you the behavior of the software on a myriad of different system configurations and under different use conditions

I don't have much of a beef with data collection. What bugs me is that they don't tell you what they collect, and you have no say in it. If MS wasn't so hush hush about it, I'd have a lot less of a problem with it. But when you're on a crippled internet connection like me, and EVERY time you start your PC, you see your entire 1.7Mb net connection get used up for 10-15 minutes, it's REALLY goddamned annoying. I have to boot my PC up and wait 10 minutes before I can actually use the internet, because MicroSuck is uploading tons of crap without telling me anything. That's my beef.

I'm totally with you on the whole thing. I'm not bothered with it really, as long as I know what EXACTLY they are actually collecting data about.

They collect it all every site you visit every key stroke the lot.
Anyone that thinks that data mining is minimal are deluded every bit of data across the globe is mined and filtered and searched.
