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.

What can I say? The sarcasm tags are missing. But, no, Microsoft can't afford to be perceived as lying here-- the mere fact that they released the tool says Microsoft believes they have to be more transparent.

Yes, they can. They have messed up horribly many times before. Lawsuits never stopped them. There is no such thing as "trust" with Microsoft. They have proven many times that they will do anything, including illegal activities, if they believe they can get away with it. And up to this point they always did get away with it (because "it's just another lawsuit"). What makes you think this time it's different?
