Re: It's the data harvesting

Did you pay for Windows 10? Nope.

Would I have paid for Windows 10 if I saw it worth the money? Yep. I was actually considering it in its early days. It looked promising. The betas had telemetry, and I thought that this was just during the beta period and that the final release would have this turned off.

However, in light of:

- the telemetry in the final release, which is more difficult to remove than a nun's knickers and is constantly turning itself back on

- the lack of control over updates

- the attempt to coerce users into downloading free "upgrades" to the OS

I say, no deal.
