    Let's say I'm a little paranoid, Windows 7 is an operating system matured, while Windows 10 IMO still do not and I do not like being watched everywhere from Microsoft or anyone else :mad:, not that I have anything to hide, not I like, period.
    As giveaway licenses can say that the past year has been a lucky year for me.:)

    While many data collection services in Win10 are enabled by default, you can opt out of most of them by simple toggles and by clearing previously captured data (just like in case of Google app in Android). What more is troubling you may I ask :)
