Windows 7 has had telemetry for several years now. Same thing with Windows 8 if anyone is still using it.

Which is why you avoid those specific updates and rely on 3rd party security products. Unfortunately they went to the cumulative model about a year ago.

My gaming rig is win7 sp1 without "telemetry specific updates" and without any further updates once they went to the cumulative model, except for .NET installs by games. Of course, I mostly keep it offline other than downloading a new game from Steam or GOG (or patching a game via steam).

My everything else machine... Linux Mint.

That said... if I ever do upgrade... I'll probably run server 2019 as a workstaion OS to eliminate a majority of the spyware out of the box... then lock it down from there.

Paranoia on my part? No... more like "fuck you too, microsoft"
