Well, during the initial custom install I thought I screwed everything down tight at that point. But, that didn’t really do much good 🙁

The whole Win 10 thing revolves about Microsoft having access to everything you do. As an example, the much touted Cortana needs access to all kinds of your information before you can start to use it. Why would they need to know your contacts or what sites you have visited in order to search something for you?

Every turn you take they are prying into all kinds of unrelated information that they are going to share with “their partners”. I could rant on about sites and their sharing with their partners — but you get the idea.
