I'd just like to remind everyone that OS X, iOS, Android, and Ubuntu (Unity Desktop) all have these super scary spying features, and you can't turn them off. I feel like this is an example of "it's easier to say sorry than to ask for permission". Microsoft goes though the trouble of actually letting you turn off these spying features, but the simple fact that they let you know about them by asking for them is apparently their real sin here.
I will say the forced updates are annoying though. I might deactivate the update service because of that. It's not the end of the world though, I'll just turn it back on when I want to update. Apparently I'm the only person who knows how to do that.
Android, and Ubuntu are free os
windows 10 update is Free for 1 year
windows 10 ("Free update") the forced updates can be a good thing most computer users are computer illiterate but going by the past i do not want forced updates just in case there is a bad update there may be under the hood changes but the bad changes out ways the good changes the constant push to metro apps imho is stupid they have deprecated the windows update in the control panel so to update windows you need to open the pc settings metro app on my install of windows 8.1 i never open metro apps
Microsoft are getting demonized because they are not learning why windows 8 / 8.1 was a failure they learned why vista was a failure and they release windows 7 but they have not learned so windows 10 is going to be a failure the 1 year Free update is a marketing ploy how many have got the free upgrade then downgraded back to windows 7 or 8 i have downgraded back to windows 8.1
if windows 10 was not free how many that got the free update wooden have went to buy windows 10
