    There's a reason Windows 10 was a free upgrade. Microsoft is making bank from all the user data they're now gathering from its users.

    The entire OS feeds back information about your habits, searches, browsing and app usage almost constantly. I do wonder if they'll be coerced into changing this once GDPR becomes law.

    BTW if you are a Windows 10 user and would rather not have the OS report on everything you do, have a look at ShutUp10: https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10

    I suspected this a long time ago!!!! which is why i denied the free upgrade and i posted on here suggesting that windows 10 might abuse your data and got ridiculed by other users.
