Windows 10's 'built-in keylogger'? Ha ha, says Microsoft – no, it just monitors your typing

Re: Calm The F**k Down!

Yeah. What Amorous Cowherder said.

This is development software. Shit, if I was making a pre-release OS available widely I'd want to put stuff like this in too. Let's face it, most users aren't capable of logging a bug report much more accurate than 'Boo Hoo, it's not working'. They certainly aren't up to telling the poor developer what they were doing before it stopped working so that the problem can be replicated. Quite apart from Microsoft's stated reasons of improving autocorrect and so forth, this could be a real boon in reproducing errors.

As long as they remove it from the final shipping version then I'm okay with this. But, as stated, beta users might want to refrain from internet banking or browsing for pictures of naked ladies with this release.
