I don't doubt you but that sounds like some huge conspiracy theory.

No conspiracy theory. Just check out the tech sites or some ofl the articles Travis has been posting. It is a fact that Windows 10 reports back to M$ with just about everything you do in the name of user experience. Check with some of the people here on GTT who had their systems up dated to window 10 without their permission or because they used the red X to shut down the nag screen and it updated. Back around 2008 (not real sure about the date) DOJ took M$ to court on anti-trust charges which brought out how they bullied the computer companies into only installing windows. This is a matter of public record. Then they came up with this secure boot to try and eliminate installing another OS so once again they would be dominate. Now with Windows 10 and their privacy invasion. From what I know some of the reporting can be turned off but the CEO of M$ himself said that not all could be.
Years ago a Linux distro did something similar but not on the magnitude Windows 10 does. When it came out, which didn't take long, the distro shut down with in a short period of time like a month if that. The Linux community won't stand for such a invasion.
Some pleasure reading for you.
