I'm as ardent an MS basher as most, but in the "might as well know thine enemy" spirit I've already upgraded one of my VMs to Win 10.

There is an option to configure where you get your updates from - Microsoft, PC on your own network, PCs on the internet as a whole. Where you share to seems to follow this setting.

Boss asked me what I thought. After a short pause I replied that it didn't seem as bad as Windows 8 ! That's glowing praise isn't it :-)
