Re: All as bad

At least with Linux the OS itself is not uploading all my data (unlike a PC running running bog standard home version Windows 10 which most people would get chucked in on their personal purchases).

Average Win 10 user can choose their AV vendor (& have some say in AV snooping), but unless they change OS, they cannot stop potentially confidential data being sent to MS.
