@Dave Horn - Re: Please...
We obviously all have differing views on the issue - that's not unexpected.
The question is whether or not it is worth continuing to bang on about privacy issues wrt Windows 10. My view is that uptake of Windows 10 has flattened and Microsoft are not yet in a position to be confident that their overall plan to move everyone off Windows 7/8.1 to 10 will succeed.
Therefore there is a chance (however remote) that they will change tack - and those who care about it will still bang on about it.
I guess this time next year the situation will be clear : if the world has gone over to 10 with all that it entails, then further complaining is pointless. If not, then it's still up for grabs.
