Ok, here's a question: What if the user installed a software firewall and initially blocked all outbound traffic, then gave permission to only certain programs like Steam, Chrome, etc.? Wouldn't that effectively cut 10 from doing any suspicious activity and keeping it completely local?

That's kinda like saying "Lets hire a thief to clean our house, we will just watch him real close and check his pockets before he leave." You could technically do it, but why would you want to?

I'm thinking of those that want/need to stay on Windows and at some point have to upgrade to 10 to get say, DX12 for some game they want to run. Download the upgrade (preferably as a standalone file, not through Automatic Updates), install it and go about their business with the OS being unable to talk to the outside world but allowing third party programs to do so. I think if I'm ever forced to do the upgrade because of some software need, I'll just continue to run Linux in a VM for browsing, coding, etc. or dual-boot and use 10 for gaming.

It was just a thought.

Hello, HIPAA violations. I hope Microsoft is ready for class action lawsuits. Of course they are.

I'm hoping some talented hacker will figure out how to randomize that unique advertising ID.
