Yes I have used Win 10. On the first day you could download it. However. I don't want it for what i'm doing at this point.

Best OS in terms of telementry spying?

Id rather downgrade to Vista than switch to 10.
Not going to trade my dwindling privacy rights for a supposed dangling carrot that is DX12

The hate for windows 10 is just becoming a bandwagon now, similar to vista in fact

When both where actually pretty good OSes.

can't tell if people are being sarcastic of they're genuinely...something else. having a mobile UI, forced updates, and forced telemetry makes it the best windows ever? lol come on now


also on the topic of new lows for microsoft, the other day i reinstalled win 7 using the same exact method i've been doing for years but now i can't install any updates. the updater just hangs and can't even download the catalog

He must be out of his mind to use Win Spy in the office. While EULA's are pretty much worthless M$py have given themselves the right to everything and anything created on 'their' OS and how would they have access to it unless the OS wasn't sending them your work? The EULA certainly doesn't say they will send someone over to collect it.

 

At home Win Spy is a serious threat, in any professional environment it's suicidal to use this corporate espionage tool.

Win Spy is so great M$py have to resort to these desperate tactics to force people to downgrade. They might as well put a gun to our heads.

Cant take you seriously when you actually compared Vista to 10.

10 is the epitome of forced telementry gathering and privacy invasion. You dont know what M$ does with the info they gather. Or even what they do gather. They can say one thing but do another thing entirely.

Use WSUS offline update... http://download.wsusoffline.net/ It's much faster and doesn't install any of the "recommended" junk.
