Re: Shock Horror new CPUs won't support 7 year old OS
You may not realise, but new CPU generations generally introduce issues with Windows, generally these are fixed quietly by Microsoft via Windows Update.
MS is going to stop doing this, which isn't unreasonable for such and old OS
When was the last time you used a 6+ year OS on a brand new:
Windows has been a bit of an odd one out here. I wouldn't be suprised even if a old version of Linux wouldn't work properly on a brand new system.
All the other moaners: its not exactly hard to configure the privacy settings. There are various other 3rd party apps which wll allow you to disable these settings (and telemetry) if it bothers you so much.
Windows 10 is a pretty good sucessful OS. The bashing and 'Use Mint' etc comments here are getting tiresome
