so Windows 10 has become under fire for spying on users...logging keystrokes... saving information and keeping it. Now Microsoft will have my banking info, even more of my spending habits.... credit scores.... etc.

Fuck this...This is probably why they made this free. So businesses who were still running XP could feel like they could upgrade finally without spending a TON of money... And Microsoft gets everyone's personal information to do whatever they want with it.

Edit. Guess it isn't free.. but my point still stands

Actually, Windows XP users don't get the upgrade for free. But I agree - nothing is free these days. "Free" usually means "we're giving this to you because you're the product being sold."

I agree except for "these days". Nothing is ever free. You were always the product being sold.
