Duma in Russia said the same thing back in 2015. Do you know of any news after that, or other countries?

Microsoft pays Ed Bott (who does actually work directly for Microsoft) and other news outlets to DELIBERATELY spread misinformation--it's well known Windows 10 breaches privacy and security principles for governments, banks, medical, nuclear etc.

In fact, Microsoft had no choice but to create a special version of Windows 10 that is missing a lot of the telemetry:

This, too is well known but often ignored. IF MICROSOFT had to make a special version for China--why would that be?! Oh... because what the Dutch government (and many others!) have been saying, is true.

It gets even more involved because Microsoft changed the way telemetry behaves when they had to disclose what it did during the investigation by the European Union; to 'tame' it a bit. They were most assuredly harvesting more data prior to the disclose of the -later- releases of Windows 10. Because it's 'software as a service' they can play little games where it changes what Windows 10 collects, at different points.

Anyways... I have proof Ed Bott actually contradicts his public misinformation with some of the PDFs he produced -for- microsoft -hosted at Microsoft-, I can't remember which one it was specifically, but they're all available publicly:

https://download.microsoft.com/download ... MOBILE.PDF

https://download.microsoft.com/download ... e-Only.pdf

In fact, Microsoft even has a page where they embellish it:

Thank you for that. I'm beginning to think the Russian hackers and Russian propaganda in general learned their trade by watching MSFT lying.
