Who really cares Cortana is just like the every other windows search bar it just uses more stuff (so its a bit better?) then the other windows do

She should be like she is in Halo with all this tech im sure they could make her matrix-halo like on your pc cause then it would be kinda cool to use i think her as a search bar is dumb as hell to me

She should talk to you move around your screen warn you etc if you get where im going... sort of like the porn avatar programs they have with the little chicks that move around on your desktop but she would be more techy and matrix-ish looking since she is Cortana

Exactly. Windows 10 is becoming one giant piece of spyware.

It's actually more of a TROJAN piece of software designed to extract all your information and substituting anything it likes. Like I kept on saying before that it should be correctly termed as Trojan 10 the new software travesty for the 21st Century.

Well, Windows 10 Cortana is starting to resemble Halo 5 Cortana, so mission accomplished, Microsoft.

The best choice is to simply uninstall it and not allow them to succeed with Windows 10. If they fail to reach their goal and no one is buying their Windows 10 apps or other crap even a company like Microsoft will go broke or change their ways eventually. The real question becomes how many people will adopt this mindset vs those who don't, sadly we are probably the minority of users that like to have any privacy possible on the internet.

I haven't updated Windows 7 in years and I don't see myself upgrading anytime in the near future.
