Re: I am not at all sure Android is more "slurpy"
Android slurp is a opt-in. When you setup a device, just don't agree to Google play terms and conditions, select cancel and use your device without any tracking or slurp. Just don't expect to be able to use any Google services. That is the deal, and it's pretty fair.
Microsoft slurp is a tricky opt out procedure, one that seems to keep resetting itself back to opt you back in..
