Microsoft really wants the data and the $$$ from people using their Window's Store/Bing. I know what they are trying to do. They are trying to create an ecosystem like Google Play, itunes, steam, etc. Its a shame that they are resorting to smartphoning Windows in order to keep up or better yet be relevant at all in the mobile space. I updated to Win10 on my old laptop to try it out and use it for Windows Apps. Its smooth so far. Its the phoning home (the privacy stuff at a glance looks like it was ripped off an android device), slow upgrading, damaging/forced updates, and lack of user tailoring to the window manager which is its Achilles heel. People attack Microsoft but the mobile space is the real evil. Where do you think they got their privacy violating ideas (stole) from? The Mobile space is going to continue to authoritarianly lock us out of modifying our devices while data-mining us to death. Microsoft is unfortunately playing catch up, where once people stood in line for their OS, now they have to spam them with nagware to take it for free. They are desperately trying to be Google/Android.
