could be interesting if the EU users get a different control panel with more options.

will quickly make its way to users outside the EU. gonna be an interesting cat and mouse game as people decide if they are bothered or not by MS watching over your shoulder 24/7
 
Too little too late and does not look user friendly at all. Just like BSOD log. Look like you can see details but not prevent the "leak" It just tells you what service telemetry is working. No sigh of what data is transferred or anything.

it's a start though. could also be a good bit of smoke and mirrors to keep the various governments off their backs. if they show a list of innocent data they have collected and "forget" to include everything they collect, the gov's may be pacified enough to not pursue them as strongly.

we've seen it before with many other companies in the past. they pretend to comply even though they maintain the were never doing it in the first place and then everyone forgets about them and moves on. sad but it works all the time.

We here at Microsoft, our users computer use and online behavior are our most priority thats why we bring you a new privacy tool that complies with safety and online privacy regulating body where they wont know that this new tool is our new way tracking you so we can evade new penalties and sanctions they might inflict.

We just reinvented the wheel to bring the same shit to you so no matter what you do we can keep track of you the moment you go online way better than Google do.

Thank you for using our new Microsoft Windows operating system.


...Nice walk around to avoid law suits Microsoft LOL!

@Rock_n_Rolla If you think MS can track of your data better than Google you are making a mistake. Given that Google knows where you are at all times via Android phones, what you search via Google search engine, who you communicate with via Gmail, list goes on. Finally, how much of MS revenue is made from personal data mining + advertising? About 5-6%. Google on the other hand about 75%. So, who is really in the business of collecting your data?
