Following the publication last year of the data collected by Windows 10's built-in telemetry and diagnostic tracking, Microsoft today announced that the next major Windows 10 update, due around March or April, will support a new app, the Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer, that will allow Windows users to browse and inspect the data that the system has collected.

While I doubt this tool will alleviate any of the concerns some people have over Windows 10's data collection, it does at least give some insight into what's being sent to Microsoft - assuming, that is, you trust the reporting to be truthful and accurate.

Microsoft never lied to us before. They have no reason to do so. That's why they are always open, never hide anything. Their sources are open to public and they don't contain any stolen code. They never attack any other company on false basis, they never buy a company just to shut down its business. This is, my friend, best thing that happened to humanity since invention of a wheel. That's why we should trust them when they say we should trust them. POTUS is a completely different thing. His office is aimed at making money in any way possible, no matter the cost, by principle.
