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.

Your sarcasm is failing. I never said, or implied any of that.

I said it doesn't matter whether Microsoft is telling the truth, because no one cares about the actual truth any longer-- merely the perceived truth.

Once upon a time, if you wanted to claim someone was lying, you needed actual proof. Now, even if you have proof, no one will believe you.

Hard to believe we went from the "information age" to the "post truth" age... but never underestimate society's ability to screw itself.
