The only fact you need for not installing windows 10 is that microsoft isn't a charity. Everything you need to know about windows 10 can be derived from that statement.

Very true.

IT security professionals know that these 'features' are simply more hooks for surveillance, which will be used on everyone.

Also very true.

Don't ask me to care about people who can't be bothered to simply read some text either. They were already going to hop on instagram or facebook and share all of that info willingly. People have been idiots about privacy since the dawn of the internet and they will continue to be no matter what. If Edward Snowden's revelations couldn't make people care then nothing can.

Very true as well.

Look, I'm not saying don't install 10. I'm saying that those of us that care about our privacy have a ton of work to do to make sure the crap we don't want is off or blocked. The same goes for my phone. I don't Facebook, twitter, or social network on any level because I'm not willing to give up my privacy, nor do I want to "publish my life". I only post on a handful of forums (3.. and one I privately own among friends... no public access). I take extreme extra measures to make sure marketers can't track me (as best as I possibly can).

That said... what pisses me off about all this shit is that it's all "opt out" and even then, sometimes you can't opt out.

An OS is a NECESSITY. Facebook is not. I turn all the shit off in 10 and cortana still tries to phone home to MS as soon as I click the start menu icon... and I have to block it at a software or perimeter firewall level. There's something definitely wrong with that.
