How about "none at all"? Why do people put up with this?.
Most people really dont care, they are hypnotised by eye candy, gamers and virtual reality. It doesnt pay for the masses to think or even look for what is wrong in society. It will happen, it is brewing but i doubt it will happen in my liffetime.

I wonder if M$ will ever rethink its stupid "Windows as a Service" paradigm and just offer a "barebones" no phone home OS that works.

(My initial thought is "No, they won't." OTOH, they did reverse themselves in the Win8 debacle, offering Win8.1. So a Windows 10.1? We can hope.)

Time will tell.

I thought it interesting that Apple had gone to a linux based OS years ago.

Anyway, IF M$ were able to come out with a Linux based OS that ran legacy 64 bit Windows programs - AND that didn't spy on us - I might go for that.

We'll see.

Get Ready for Windows 10 Forced Updates – Version 1809 Begins Installing on Non-Seeker PCs

"Windows 10 1809 rollout to speed up now that the company has started pushing it more aggressively
Microsoft has experienced some of the worst adoption rate with the latest Windows 10 version. But now that the company has sorted out most of the issues, it is likely the adoption rate will begin to rise. The Windows maker will also feel more confident in aggressively pushing it on more devices, which is what appears to be happening now."

Happy new year,
Lots of love,
Microsoft.

I guess that they will sneak stuff into 7 and 8.1 updates too.

2019-01-16. Cortana on the way out? Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 1903 Preview Build – Further Alienates Cortana
The company is now separating Cortana from Search, which means no “accidental” uses anymore.

2019-01-17. Microsoft Begins Automatic Phased Rollout of Windows 10 October 2018 Update
Then another one in March as per the self imposed timetable or does this rip that to shreds? Personally i wouldnt bother and focus on getting the March update in a fit state instead, after all its only 6 weeks away for pitys sake.
