So do I tell them the truth, or a whole bunch of damned lies? Just for the record, I'm 13 months into testing Windows 10, and it's been a turbulent 13 months, of installing, re-installing, uninstalling, re-installing, and adding into it various other third-party programs both old and new, to find out how or if it can run them. Do I have a Number One Complaint? Yes! I do!
Please look at the top entry and the bottom two entries on this list of scan logs. Those are my Number One Complaint! There are simply too many tracking cookies being planted in Windows 10, not just occasionally, but regularly.
I haven't got the time nor the patience to contact every one of these to tell them to stop bugging me, and that wouldn't help anyway, because they wouldn't listen to me. They are only interested in collecting information, supposedly to help them improve the system. I'm all in favor of improvement. It's who has my data, and what they do with it, and who else gets some, that worries me. I've read the George Orwell book, "Nineteen Eighty Four" and this cookie problem is too much like something "Big Brother" would do to keep tabs on his unwashed masses. I don't like it. I don't like it even a little bit.
If it is going to be a regular feature of Windows from now on, I think I'll just say "Bye-Bye, Satya - I can't go on loving my Windows unless you clean out the Spyware, including but not limited to "Cortana" and OneDrive." The contents of my computer are there for myself, not for every crafty bastard who thinks that I'm too stupid to figure out how to discover their implants and remove them. And I'm not planning on spending a significant part of my computing day looking for hidden spyware and disabling it. I have better things to do with my time - things that are a lot more fun. And I do know how to use Linux. I have it on my other computer now. It doesn't have this problem. It knows better. And so, my friend, should you.
