That's incredible you have to go to those lengths. Makes me even more determined never to use another Microsoft system. Only two machines now left to convert to Linux  ;)

If you can do it .... go for it.

MS have overstepped the mark .... seriously.
We may be seeing the thin end of the wedge.
If MS get away with this it will encourage others to follow.
I include Apple & Google in this as they will be able to 'improve' their service to their users with a ready-made excuse ('Valid Business Driver')

I think this may be one of those moments in history where 'Big' changes happens. (Or at least starts the process.)

I don't want Operating Systems and/or Applications to be 'rented' to me by the month, where my own data is part of the rental price.
I have seen the move at the Apps level and I am waiting for MS and others to morph towards the same with Operating Systems.
I see Win10 being the first step towards this.
As part of the wide open and generic EULA, how do you know MS will not announce the next evolution is a subscription based model.
This will, of course, be to enable MS to fund the on-going/never ending patching of the OS which is 'Windows as a Service'.
MS will not absorb the costs forever.
It is expedient now to create and lock-in the customers at their own costs but one day the business model will change/evolve. It has to.
Buying customers now is part of the fierce battle between MS / Apple and with Google they are all fighting to get your data and monitise it in any way they can think of.
The dust will begin to settle when MS hit their target numbers and start 'Cranking up' the revenue stream. (read: Start getting you to spend for all the extras you will 'NEED' )

Yours,
Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells. (Still)  ;D

Unfortunately this is the way it will all be. It gives all the control over price and curbing piracy to the software companies and they will have your data as a bonus. When more peeps are using cloud based services then you can also kiss net nutrality good by as well.

Thats partly why Windows 10 is so chatty. Microsoft currently cant beat Google so they aim to get all the info Google gets before Google gests it; and more by getting it at source ;)

All of which is why I run Linux with 99.9% free software and have uBlock and Ghostery installed on Firefox only whitelisting sites I have to use which wont work well not being whitelisted. Plus nothing is cloud based and never will be. I only expose data I want to.

The obvious problem is i fear these steps will have to be repeated after "feature" updates which are compulsory, as I suspect MS will readd/enable them.

Made the same comment re: O&O Free app, you are always following whatever MS does.
You switch it off ...... MS switches it on :) (Repeat until bored)
