Keep slobbering on the keyboard and slamming your head on the reply button Cutter, you're a real winner around here.

I find his comments to be far more valuable than whatever bullshit you spout around here, Chief Wannabeef.

If you want to turn off the snooping, you will have to BUY the Enterprise version.

1. AFAIK you can't "Buy" (retail-wise) the enterprise version. It's Volume Licensed Only. The only other way to get a copy would be an MSDN account.

2. Even with the Enterprise version locked down with policy, it still phones home when you click the start button (even with Cortana Disabled and Telemetry Policy set to completely OFF).

The only way to get rid of the Home Phoning is with DISM for taking the packages out of an image prior to OS install, or "Install_WIM_Tweak" to uninstall packages on an already installed OS.

Read this Forum Thread to figure out all the undesirable packages you can't uninstall normally: Completely eradicate Telemetry, Defender, One drive, Cortana (and other things).

I also posted an example with Install_wim_tweak here

The two methods I mentioned are the ONLY way to get rid of the phone home crap (among other bundled crap). These methods will work for the other versions (Pro, Home, Etc.) as well.

Also... a new build will be forced down on non LTS versions... meaning you will probably have to run the install_wim_tweak batch file you create, again, to again get rid of the crap.

If your not running addblock, and something like ghostery, your already leaking so much data that your complete profile with history is easily packaged by various lucrative companies that do this.

There is no such thing as anonymized data. There is always a way to correlate and cross tabulate until they have a complete picture of you.

So the deal with MS Win10 is the "free" one snoops everthing and phones it home at your expense (remember you ISP bandwidth cap?)

If you want to turn off the snooping, you will have to BUY the Enterprise version.

Very cynical of MS knowing so many sheeple will go for the free version and give up their privacy.

You certainly spend a lot of time defending something you don't agree with.

The only data collected without consent is telemetry data - a list of installed applications, crash reports, memory dumps of those crashes and so on.

So in other words they are not collecting private data except the private data they are collecting?

Both you and Julio could make you arguments much stronger by referencing some reasonably authorative sources that back up your claims (even Ars would do).

I have read up on the subject, and there is plenty of private data Microsoft is collecting regardless of whether or not you opt out. How's that job going shilling for Microsoft?

I place value in facts instead of ignorant opinions based on the news. Microsoft is collecting a lot of telemetry data and I don't agree with all of it but they are not collecting "private data" without consent, whatever the fuck that even means. The only data collected without consent is telemetry data - a list of installed applications, crash reports, memory dumps of those crashes and so on. If you're going to be angry at them about collecting things, you should actually know what it is first.

Something tells me you aren't going to make a reappearance with details on this supposed treasure trove of "private data" that they're collecting though.

Of course Microsoft doesn't see Windows 10 as a privacy risk, selling all your personal information will be a lucrative business. Where's the risk to them?

Exactly. The sheeple don't know and don't care so it's no risk to MS.

You can opt out of personal information collection. The article is regarding the anonymized telemetry data that is collected for diagnostic purposes. Stuff like crash reports and shit like that. You can't opt out of that currently and that's what the article is about. The value of such data is relatively worthless but if you want to think they're getting millions of dollars from learning you crashed VLC while watching porn then uh go use Linux. If you want to make paranoid rants about Microsoft and how much they're fucking you, at least be read up on the subject.

The SHA2 thing is very funny, Mozilla switched to it on it's Firefox download page which locked out insecure browsers (think about that for a second, what do you do on the firefox download page....)

Gave me a good chuckle back then... it's a good change though.. insecure browsers need to be replaced, no "but" Maybe locking them out from getting a secure browser is not the best way to do this though
