    Windows 10 Is FREE (lol)

    https://jonathan.porta.codes/2015/07...vacy-defaults/

    “Personalize your speech, typing, and inking input by sending contacts and calendar details, along with other associated input data to Microsoft”

    I am really not sure what this feature is offering. Is it going to try to change the way I talk and type? Is it trying to matchup keywords that I input to people or events that I might have some association with?

    Regardless of what feature this is trying to provide I can’t get over the fact that is says it will be “sending contacts and calendar details” and a very vague “associated input” to Microsoft. Associated input? That could be practically anything, especially since they want to “personalize your speech, typing, and inking”.

    Oh, and, it’s set to enabled by default. Feeling happy about my decision to not accept the defaults!

    Windows 10 is free like apps are free like facebook is free.

    Things that seem free more often than not just mean YOU are the product.

    The problem comes in the fact that Microsoft has enabled this option by default and that no notice is provided to customers that Windows is, in the background, using some of their bandwidth and their data for updating other users' Windows. Several web sites have already called Microsoft out for this and what they - and other consumers - find to be misallocation of their network without permission.
