The only thing this doesn't explain is how to solve the largest privacy issue of all...keeping your data out of the hand of Microsoft itself. The assumption seems to be, "trust us, we're MS." Enterprises I work for are...less trusting than that.

I am not rushing into Win 10 for the simple reason that I don't have any problems with Win 7 or 8.1 and thus do not need a "streaming" OS. So, I have been oblivious to the specific details of the spying concerns in Win 10.

Conceptually though, I do not see what they can possibly be doing in Win 10 that they cannot just as easily do in Win 7 or 8.1 or that Google hasn't been doing all these years either, especially via cellphones. I am not condeming them condoning the practice I meant, I am just saying that we almost have no choice but to live with it, if you want to stay connected.

"Microsoft has stated that the Windows 10 would no longer be a static piece of code that's updated just once every few years, but continually updated in a software-as-a-service model [pcmag.com]".

So, I derisively called a "continually updated" OS a "streaming" OS. That makes me a Gomer Pyle? Or you because it went right over your head?

For Win10 to be truly considered as a streaming OS means that you need a always ON internet connection which is no problem for many people since they have broadband service. However, your preference to call it a "streaming" is a total BS because that would mean Win10 stops working the moment that the PC is no longer connected to the internet. That's simply not the case.

I've read up on Win10 there's nothing that suggests that accepting those updates are mandatory. As far as your citation above ".. no longer be a static piece of code that's updated just once every few years" - I don't see how that is any different from the typical Windows updates Microsoft has provided in the past for WinXP, Vista, etc....

Software as a service means people can upgrade their Win10 edition if they so desire. It's not much different from their past strategy to offer edition upgrades (e.g. Win7 home to Win7 ultimate via physical medium DVD, the only difference is that customers have the option to download it via the internet rather using a physical medium. Try doing a little bit of reading before you loosely throw out those terms "streaming". Rolleyes2

Dude, that was an intentional, derisive exaggeration, overstatement, overemphasis, magnification, amplification, aggrandizement, a hyperbole, said completely in jest, tongue-in-cheek, facetiously, humorously.

It did go over your head, very very badly.
