Any company running Windows 7 after EOL that has issues that could be related to the version being used, could easily find themselves in trouble.

As I just asked, what of the privacy issues with W10?

I haven't looked in a while, but last time I read the EULA it did say that from time to time the contents of your computer's memory could be sent to MS for "quality assurance" or somesuch BS, and that could "include the content of any open document" or words to that effect. So if my Dr has W10 on their machine and she's updating my medical history at one of these times, my personal medical info (or a portion thereof) has just been sent to a private company who has no legal way or reason to access such information.
