1.   Though an avid loyalist of Linux for last about a decade,I always keep a tag of what’s happening in the world of Windows......and recently when Windows 10 preview was launched I started reading various reviews pan web....and I came across this startling and surprisingly criminal revelation regarding inbuilt key logging in the OS available for download.See the screen shot below straight from the Microsoft and you read it for your self highlighted...

3.   Few interesting statements below from Terms and Conditions :

"Microsoft collects information about you, your devices, applications and networks, and your use of those devices, applications and networks. Examples of data we collect include your name, email address, preferences and interests; browsing, search and file history; phone call and SMS data; device configuration and sensor data; and application usage."


"We may collect information about your device and applications and use it for purposes such as determining or improving compatibility" and "use voice input features like speech-to-text, we may collect voice information and use it for purposes such as improving speech processing."
The killer statement says, "If you open a file, we may collect information about the file, the application used to open the file, and how long it takes any use [of] it for purposes such as improving performance, or [if you] enter text, we may collect typed characters, we may collect typed characters and use them for purposes such as improving autocomplete and spellcheck features."
