Google is far more evil and less trustworty than Microsoft when it comes to data so seeing the fuss over the Windows 10 telemetry but not the Android spying from your phone is hilarious

And yes i also use my phone as little as possible and since i dont have any social media of any kind i have no excuse to use my phone other than if i need to make the rare call or text or check the GPS if i am lost

I hate smartphones and still have an ancient Nokia which still works and has a battery that can last more than a week

skupples windows 10 enterprise LTSC + OwO *shutup win10* = win.

most of the stuff oWo does can't be done on LTSC, because it isn't there in the first place. LTSC is the server platform, thus the least amount of bloat possible of any win install. You'll experience none of the issues these guides report to prevent, because the BS that causes it isn't there in the first place.

one other bit - you'll never strip down a consumer version of win10 to work as well as enterprise. Little tools and youtube videos aside. skip the BS and bad advice, go directly to LTSC & collect 200 extra hours of smooth sailing free time.

PERIOD. us even discussing it spreads this lie like plague. It was never gone, just moved.

the only place i could see that ever happening (and it hasn't yet) is on HOME. not EDU, or anywhere else. N even then, how does that account for those getting laptops in extremely rural areas where there's zero internet?

You'll get the achievements (I had about 15 unlock all at once) if you fire the game up with telemetry enabled, but the dates will be all messed up (and they won't all be the same date, either, which is even more confusing...)
Dont care about the dates i got them over a long time anway so maybe i will just turn telemetry on fire the game up get my achievements and turn telemetry off again

Any way you can find which telemetry that is related to achievement?
