Re: Stick with 8.1
" I don't understand the rabid "IT'S EATING MY PRIVACY" response with Windows 10 - after all, Google makes its living from stealing your private data and serving you ads based upon it."
You are operating under the assumption that myself and others who DO care about their privacy are automatically using Google and other privacy stealing platforms, twatter and farcebook to name but two.
I, myself, use Duckduckgo, have adblockers running left right and centre and go to great lengths to keep my privacy, well, private.
Please don't tar us all with the same brush.
