Or is all of the above for your personal amusement alone?
I'm not trying to make fun of you or other tinfoil hat users. I'm really serious, I feel sympathy and compassion towards you. The fact that you allow your decisions and opinion be shaped based mostly on rumours and your own beliefs, not fact-based things, it is very sad.

Your earlier posts clearly tell you belong to this group I call tinfoil hat brigade. You stop the useful, completely anonymous Windows 10 telemetry, you use third party applications to prevent or disable this and that, and so on.

It is quite clear that you have not given Windows 10 a fair chance. I've used Windows 10 as my main and only OS on all my devices since October 1st, 2014, currently running Insider build 19541 on all devices, and I can tell you this:
  • All devices work without an issue, have been working since day 1
  • I have done nothing to disable anything on any device
  • My devices will never restart automatically, without warning
  • Firewall and host file rules work on all devices
  • I run some old software from Vista days without issues
  • Windows looks and feels exactly as I want, because Windows 10 is the most versatile, flexible and customizable Windows version ever
Short: I really am not making fun of any of you geeks. I just sincerely, honestly pity you.

Thanks!

By the way, geeks, especially those of you who have just believed all untrue rumours and not tested Windows 10 at all: I have written a tutorial about how you can test it completely 100% safe, without any changes in your Windows 7. No installation or virtualization required, your Windows 7 remains intact: Windows 10 - Test & Try with No Risk, No Install

This video is from the tutorial:

Let me see if I understand you correctly. Leaving aside your last item which is grossly subjective at best, and the fact that you glossed over the things I mentioned that specifically were different from your experience... after I gave Windows 10 more than three years to prove itself as anything but a forced downgrade with few to no redeeming qualities, your explanation for why that apparently wasn't enough to give 10 a "fair chance" is that...... I should've kept the telemetry, forced updates, etc. on? Do I have that right?

See, the problem with your "pity" explanation (leaving aside the fact that "pity" is hardly any better, or itself more than a hair's breadth away from bald-faced condescension in the first place) is that you already tipped your hand in your first post in this thread. Evidently, people who don't want to switch to 10 are "refreshing and funny," and good for a laugh when one is sick. That, and your repeated implications that anyone who doesn't want the telemetry on is operating independently of facts, really does not give me the impression that you have any interest in discussing this in good faith (which, again, I've been giving you the benefit of the doubt on thus far despite your first post being a really good indicator to the contrary).

Given a choice between Tin Foil Hat Land and La La Land, I'll take the former. TinFoliHatter's may be a bit on the paranoid side, but LaLaLanders are way too naive.

I've enjoyed reading this board for the last few years as it really helped me maintain my Windows 7. I no longer have W7, but I do maintain my dad's PC with W7 on it...so I keep reading here looking for W7 security tips for the long haul. I understand some hate W10 or some hate W7, but there's no need to insult the users of any Operating System. Let's get this back on track and limit insults to OS and not aimed at people who use them. I hate to see this board turn into a free for all, as many, many people are still using Windows 7 and will need the boards help in the future.

Even at 76, I'm still a working PC tech, and many of my old customers still use Windows 7 (one version or another). I've done some creative programming on most of those computers, so that they "Self Maintain".
I'd stop by once a year, to update some of their programs, but that's about it. Most of those PC's will outlive their owners, and still be running, garbage and virus free.


Windows 7 is a very hardy OS, and with just a little care, will run forever.


Cheers mates!

1) I don't use the Droid or Apples. My phone is an old Windows 6 model, but still does all the things I need. Many 3rd-party GPS mapping programs are installed on it, but none of them phone home.


2) Win10's absolute rudeness in constantly commandeering your *personal* property, overwriting any changes to settings you may have made, is enough to keep me off it till my hardware goes kaput ! Then I'll try the usefulness of the tutorial here from JohnHoh on how to control Win 10.


Making Win10 look and act like Win7


As experienced by all with Win 10, the arrogant rudeness noted here is real - it actually happens, even without a tinfoil hat. And it happens repetitively.

Well Said Well Said.. You have to excuse Kari... After all he's just..
