Re: The telemetry phoned home to Redmond

I don't think anyone does think that - we already know that a number of the updates since the middle of last year (at least) are concerned with back-fitting telemetry to Win 7 and 8.1.

It's really a separate issue to the one that this article is all about : telemetry is a reason not to go to Win10, but sticking on 7 while still allowing all updates won't, as you say, achieve the desired aim.

But there are many who just want to stick with 7/8.1 because they think 10 is naff, and that's what the issue is - Microsoft using malware techniques to ride rough-shod over user preference.
