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.

RE: Don't use Windows or Mac

Yeah. Give me Linux that is actually capable of being easy to use desktop OS for a regular end-user with a hobby of photography and I will switch in a second. From my many years of searching, I came to a conclusion that there are only 2 choices:
1. Windows
2. Mac
Windows being a horrible mess, but supporting every single piece of hardware and software under the sun and in general serviceable once you get used to it. Meanwhile Mac has a really great and tidy zero-maintenance OS. Unfortunatelly, these days it also offers zero options when it comes to high-end hardware. I used both, and can't help but be torn in half between the two...
Linux? Linux never even passed the initial test. And I used Linux as my main OS for quite some time if you sum up all the attempts over the years.
