Windows 10 is basically spyware and a backdoor for NSA/GCHQ/LE

TL;DR: Pretty much everything you do on Windows 10 is synced back up to your Microsoft account, turning those "features" off is difficult or in some cases impossible, and MS's privacy policy allows them to do anything they want with your data and disclose it to anyone.

If you want privacy install Linux instead of upgrading to Windows 10.

So Windows is Spyware, Android is vunerable, where does that leave us, Linux/OSX or iOS? Pass, I'll take vunerability.

I'm not A) A wanted man, or B) Overflowing with money and sensitive files. I can live with it.

You can only turn about half of it off without manually disabling system processes from the Service Manager from what I'm reading. Even then a lot of data scraping things like Cortana are difficult to get rid of.

If you want real privacy pour battery acid into your eyes, and drive a screwdriver through your ears.
don't think of this as the end, think of it as a chance to make new friends with dealers

Not much that android doesn't do either.   Also re, encryption, truecrypt works


What is the use of that when you switch the machine on? Or decrypt the file? You're still fucked cos it's windows.
