We're talking about privacy here. This isn't a topic to weigh in on lightly; it's about something as fundamental to freedom as free speech.

His problem, as even you must agree, is that we are fast approaching a point where you can't live a normal, productive, social, or even healthy life while preserving your inalienable human right to privacy. It's nearly impossible.

You can't even hold a corporation to their legally binding documents, because the government has made it entirely legal for them to lie to you about whether or not they are spying, so long as that spying is shared with the government.

You think the pressing issue is that he's showing somewhat of a bias by drawing the line at Windows? You want to bludgeon him for not isolating himself from the modern world, because he's speaking out against this in a community that he frequents? You'd prefer to see someone like this ditching their cellphone, PC, and laptop so they can go out on the street and protest alone and be considered a crazy person?

What exactly is the suggestion you're trying to make? From where I'm standing, it seems more like you're trying to rationalize your own denial by seeking to perpetuate it

This isn't a joke. Privacy is a cornerstone of freedom. It's being stifled at every turn by this belligerent notion.. this fabricated difference between a private conversation had in person versus over the internet. They tried to say telephones weren't private conversation too, and guess what happened? The people fought it and won. AT&T wasn't allowed to listen in, nor was your neighbor, nor was the government. Warrants were required to spy on private telephone conversations. Did the world end? No.

Should I need to stop using the internet to have a private conversation? No. Should I need to use land lines to have private conversations? No. Should I need to drag people back to my home and turn off all my electronics to have a private conversation? No.

You think he has a choice to stop using technologies that result in spying? You want to know his problem? His problem and mine is that there is no choice. You can look like a crazy, paranoid and probably dangerous person to have privacy, or let yourself be spied on. If you really believe that is a choice, you wouldn't be here trying so hard to convince yourself that it's okay. It clearly is not okay.
People don't think you're crazy because you want privacy. People think you're crazy because you exaggerate the problem so bad. You don't need to stop using internet to have a private conversation,neither all the other things you said.

Heck, install Kali and you will be as safe as it gets when it comes to OS. See, problem solved.

One point you keep missing is that people paid for an OS that the manufacturer promised was going to be supported essentially unchanged for ten years after it's release and now that manufacturer is bending over backwards to renege on that promise. And it's people like you who are allowing the manufacturer to get away with it with your naïve complacency.

Your "solution" of just switching to another OS is fine for some of us here who have the computer "chops" to do so but we are but a tiny minority of all of M$py's customer base who not only do not have the skills to switch to another OS but also do not even know that doing so is an option. Also, not all programs in the Windows universe have equivalents in Linux or those Windows programs would be far too expensive to replace. Of course, if you are offering to pay for those replacements for all of us...

If you're talking about Windows 7,the mainstream support has already ended.

If you talk about Windows 8.1,it is still in mainstream support until 2018.

You can use Windows for those programs only. If you find the spying so bad,it won't be a big deal. Installing Ubuntu or whatever other friendly user linux distro is not hard.

That said;

These Windows 10, trash tier, hit pieces are getting old and are amounting to nothing but forum spam.

Yup! Absolutely. People need to stop complaining about how invasive Windows 10 is and realize how invasive Apple and Android are. Then we can show you that Microsoft isn't breaking any rules that haven't already been crossed by so many other companies. Even then, Google scans emails too, and hell they caught a child molester attempting to hook up with some youngster! So... I say if it helps everyone out, why not let them scan away?

Makes me feel better knowing that Microsoft is keeping an eye on everything on top of everyone else.

To the bolded passage I can make no better reply than the one made by Benjamin Franklin:

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Using your "logic", we should ban all automobiles because someone may kill someone else with one. Heck, the terrorist attack on my Country's Capitol and a major city on 9/11 could have been prevented by banning all airplanes. I suggest you read Michael Crichton's "State of Fear".

Apparently, young pups like you are too young to remember the days when one's personal privacy was a sacred concept and, thus, do not value it. I do not want my personal life exposed to the entire world, which could be abused or used to rob me of my finances and property, destroy the credit rating I worked hard to achieve, destroy my personal freedoms, threaten my life, etc. The country I live in was founded on the concept of personal freedoms, including the freedom to privacy, making the actions of the current government to the allow, and contribute to, the abrogation of those freedoms both ironic and abominable.

Quite frankly Im old enough to remember such a thing and outside of nostalgia it never was as you are describing in (at least not in our lifetimes, unless you are quite old). Bottom line is that for anyone that lives in the modern world or ever goes out into public, that level of privacy simply doesnt exist. I understand the frustration with many services these days and their built in data collection and data scanning capabilities, but it is at such commonplace that it really isnt feasible for someone to avoid it. Nearly every software service that one uses has this built into it. The notion that for whatever reason a PC based OS is different doesnt seem to make much sense. If I was overly worried about privacy issues than my cellphone, email account, or work pc (hell even my car) would be a considerably larger concern than my home pc.

The only thing I disagree with is the notion of criticizing MS for behavior that everyone is subject to. If people really wanted to have a relevant discussion over the topic it seems much better suited to create an actual thread that discusses it, rather than the weekly Windows 10 spying conspiracy.

Actually, I am quite old (late 60's). M$py's misbehavior is not the only one I criticize and deplore but M$py and Win10 is the one being discussed here.

Why is OCN so full of militant political users now? How about instead of crying foul on a forum for technology "NEWS" you go out and try to do something about it? Or better yet, stop concerning yourself with click bait articles that try to incense users over trivial things. None of you, and I mean NONE have the slightest inkling of an idea of how much information the government already has on you, if you did and you were actually concerned about it you would live in a cave in a third world nation and you would own nothing. Your bank turns information over, your doctor does it, your church does it, your kid's scout troop does it, the grocery store does it, you have no privacy so stop complaining that the government is ''trying'' to take it away. It has been gone for DECADES. Come to terms and move on.

Ok I'm going to try to add to the discussion here in a constructive/objective way and hope that this doesn't just get buried.

The first thing I mention in any discussion about internet privacy is that as a construct, the internet is inherently public. If you want proof of this for yourself, try a traceroute to any website you frequent (especially an international site) and see all the routers your request bounces through. Nowadays, thanks to SSL/TLS as well as the native encryption suites on whatever platform we use, we haven't had to think too much about all the places our data goes between endpoints, but every time you take sexy-selfie to send to your partner, it is going through a LOT of random computers. I mention this to illustrate the fundamental openness of the internet.

"But alcal, this is different. I'm not worried about some guy in Frankfurt seeing my packets passing through--that's what encryption is for after all. This is about companies handing over our data to third parties such as governments and advertisers!" you might say. And you're both right and wrong to say so. Perhaps when you first heard about Gmail, you heard it was free, powerful and didn't require a subscription to an email provider (remember those awful Comcast email clients?), so you rushed over and signed up. What you forgot is that nothing is free and when you signed up for Gmail (or any other platform) you accepted an EULA which basically agreed that your data could be used however they see fit. If you don't like that, then take a lesson from Hillary and host your own email servers.

We are engaging in a willful exchange of goods and services with Google/Facebook/whomever. Furthermore, while those companies are under little obligation to do so, they actually do treat our data fairly responsibly. Google doesn't host a website called EmbarassingUserEmails.google.com, nor does Apple publish your naked-selfies to iCloud (oops too soon? Sorry celebs). Jokes aside, the point is that they try to earn our trust.

There IS a real problem here though, and that is not what the companies choose to do with our data. It is what our government TELLS them to do, but guess whose fault that is? Yours! Mine! Ours! It is our elected officials (mostly hilariously underqualified right wing senators/congressmen with some hilariously underqualified dems/independents in there too). Blame the partisan system if you want, but in the end it is our duty as the educated minority to help guide the country on technological matters.

So what do we do? Well we managed to mess up royally with CISA. It got passed (and expanded to ridiculous proportions) because it was bundled in with an un-vetoable spending bill, but there is a new topic still in contention which is even more important: the legality of end-to-end encryption. Both federal and state legislators are trying to insist that tech companies be able to decrypt our devices and conversations. Unlike everything we've been talking about until now, THIS is an actual travesty.

Internet communications used to be plaintext--readable by anybody who saw a packet pass through. Clever engineers realized this was suboptimal and designed security platforms and algorithms which we CAN use if we choose to. By allowing lawmakers to even DISCUSS ways of circumventing this we are letting go of one of our most fundamental internet rights, which is to protect our communications if we CHOOSE to do so. This is different from using a Microsoft/Google/Apple service because we agreed with the EULA that they can do what they wish with our data.

The beautiful irony here is that it is the tech giants everybody has been scorning in these threads are the most outspoken supporters of encryption. Many government requests for user data have been foiled (especially in Apple's case) because Apple themselves are unable to decrypt iMessage data, and they have been fighting against our elected representatives to keep it that way.

TLDR: This isn't Microsoft's fault. They are just trying to make a good product and turn a profit. They don't care how big your pr0n library is. The government we elected are the ones MAKING them divulge what kind of pr0n you like to find out if you are a predator. If you don't like it, vote for a representative with half a brain, sign a petition, build or invest in secure social media platforms, write a letter to your representative, or mail the NSA a box of cow dung. Do NOT write angry forum posts about companies who are following the law and acting within EULAs you signed.

Thanks for reading if you made it this far.

So it's not crazy to want privacy but it is crazy to recognize that I have no legal right to privacy when I'm in the presence of a listening device which is basically always. With phones, for instance, we're taking GPS, text messaging, email, browsing, microphone, telemetry. Browsing includes my reading material, sexual habits, political views, hobbies, social habits and other easily discerned personal information.

The government placed legislation into a budget bill over Christmas that makes it legal for corporations to covertly invade my privacy without my consent or knowledge, so long as they share said information with the government. That's a fact, not an exaggeration.

Let's accept your premise that I'm crazy for recognizing my loss of legal right to a privacy except while on my own property in the absence of most modern devices. I want the government to obtain a warrant with my name on it before investigating me in this fashion; that's my reaction. If you think that's crazy, so be it.

Only a warrant with my name on it could remove these rights, previously. The government took specific action to change that.
What reaction to this do you consider sane?
