*Points to your router* You know... this thing which isn't subservient to your computer OS and can, OMG, BLOCK whatever it wants no matter what your OS does? Please... stop with the fearmongering. I had numerous problems with win 10, but none to do with its supposedly Orwellian tendencies. Those can be dealt with very easily, it just takes time and a bit of effort.

It's a lot more phoning home than you think, and it's a lot more effort than you think.

No privacy tool nor amount of firewall blocking covers everything... and there will be future IP addresses to block. You really want to play that cat and mouse game?

Or just run an OS that doesn't do that crap?
