It did make some difference in the background, although the user interface is virtually unchanged. Now, everthing you do on your laptop is being relayed back to Microsoft, this is part of Windows 10. Bank transactions etc. should be thoroughly encrypted, and therefore not of much use to Microsoft, but they've got the files: can you guarantee some bent Microsoft employee doesn't find the files and then spend a lot of time decryping them? No, of course not. I would NOT use any computer running Windows 10 for anything confidential, or indeed anything involving transfer of money.

It was free, correct ?

When has Microsoft ever done anything for free ? You will pay for it, you may not know how, but as others have said, you will pay.

Exactly. Why do you think they bought LinkedIn? Not because it's profitable that's fer shur. It's because it gives them access to the sort of people they want to tap up for business in the future.

I'm going to get an apple. That will screw microsofts ambitions. I don't want to. Be beholden to big business :roll:

Hey, my life got a lot simpler after biting the Apple. It just works. No, you can't go in and tweak or that
it just does what it does.

Windows 10 is much better than Windows 8 on a lap top anyway. My Girlfriend says it is no less secure than any other OS. At least that's what I think she said, most of it was a load of techy guff :roll:

Did you have to give her your credit card details to get her back on your PC screen ?

Yes. Most people get a 4 grand credit card bill, don't they?

Mine was nearer 7 but you have to pay extra for certain outfits.

Would it make things better if I told you I'd lied to others and not just you ?
