"Taking this a step further, the testing was then repeated on another Windows 10 clean installation again with all data tracking options disabled and third party tool DisableWinTracking was also installed which tries to shut down all hidden Windows 10 data reporting attempts. At the end of the 30 hour period Windows 10 had still managed to phone home with data 2758 times to 30 different IP addresses. "

ms being shady? check.

data is a currency now. name another popular publicly traded tech company that doesn't relentlessly track its willful patrons. GOOG? FB? AAPL? AMZN? VZ? TWTR? T?

our own habits subsidize the cost of our own habits. should i be ok with this? would i pay more for a totally anonymous internet?

ads are targeted. from billboards to ota tv stations and radio. we will be studied and analyzed to provide sales pitches.

does recognizing this make me a shill?

Duckduckgo does not track your searches. (GNU) Linux Mint is super easy to install and use. The Cinnamon desktop version is very user friendly. Most GNU/Linux distributions offer full disk encryption so the FedGov can go pound sand. I do not know of ANY GNU/Linux distribution that tracks users.
