Here's How To Keep Microsoft's Nose Out Of Your Personal Data In Windows 10

 Microsoft is downloading Windows 10 to your machine 'just in case'

--- Quote --- MICROSOFT HAS CONFIRMED that Windows 10 is being downloaded to computers whether or not users have opted in.
An INQUIRER reader pointed out to us that, despite not having 'reserved' a copy of Windows 10, he had found that the ~BT folder, which has been the home of images of the new operating system since before rollout began, had appeared on his system. He had no plans to upgrade and had not put in a reservation request.
He told us: "The symptoms are repeated failed 'Upgrade to Windows 10' in the WU update history and a huge 3.5GB to 6GB hidden folder labelled '$Windows.~BT'. I thought Microsoft [said] this 'upgrade' was optional. If so, why is it being pushed out to so many computers where it wasn't reserved, and why does it try to install over and over again?
"I know of two instances where people on metered connections went over their data cap for August because of this unwanted download. My own internet (slow DSL) was crawling for a week or so until I discovered this problem. In fact, that's what led me to it. Not only does it download, it tries to install every time the computer is booted."
We asked Microsoft to comment on whether it was downloading Windows 10 anyway as the company rushes to build on the 75 million machines with the new OS installed in its first month, putting it in fourth place behind Window 7, 8.1 and the erstwhile XP.
Microsoft told us: "For individuals who have chosen to receive automatic updates through Windows Update, we help upgradable devices get ready for Windows 10 by downloading the files they’ll need if they decide to upgrade.
"When the upgrade is ready, the customer will be prompted to install Windows 10 on the device.”
In other words, if you are patching via Patch Tuesday, as you should of course be, then you are going to get a big hefty folder on your hard drive ready so you can update to Windows 10 on demand.
Now, far be it from The INQUIRER to point fingers, but isn't this a bit presumptuous on Microsoft's part? We know it's keen to get everyone on Windows 10 as quickly as possible but this is not a small background patch - it's a whopping huge operating system image.
For someone using a 2-in-1 with 32GB of flash memory, that's a hefty chunk of their storage being clogged up with an OS that they might not want yet, if at all.
Whether you believe it's to avoid fragmentation or to spy on you depends on how much pot you smoked in college, but it now appears to have gone from 'over keen' to 'needy' and you have to wonder why and whether it's going to blow up in the company's face.
It should be enough of a clue that over 10 percent of Windows machines are still on XP and Vista, while there's over 40 percent more of the market on 7 than on 8, to be able to tell that people don't like to assume.
It's like the U2 iTunes debacle again. After that, Bono said: "Oops … I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea … might have got carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that thing.
"A drop of megalomania, a touch of generosity, a dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years mightn't be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there. I guess we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it."

Heh, Majkrosoft će učiniti sve da vas ubede da je Windows najuniverzalniji operativni sistem na svetu, kako za kućne tako i za profesionalne potrebe, od malih firmi sa dve-tri mašine pa do data centara za, recimo, šta ja znam, klaud kompjuting... Osim ako to nisu njihovi data-centri  :lol: :lol:
 
 Microsoft has developed its own Linux. Repeat. Microsoft has developed its own Linux
 

--- Quote --- Sitting down? Nothing in your mouth?
Microsoft has developed its own Linux distribution. And Azure runs it to do networking.
Redmond's revealed that it's built something called Azure Cloud Switch (ACS), describing it as “a cross-platform modular operating system for data center networking built on Linux” and “our foray into building our own software for running network devices like switches.”
Kamala Subramanian, Redmond's principal architect for Azure Networking, writes that: “At Microsoft, we believe there are many excellent switch hardware platforms available on the market, with healthy competition between many vendors driving innovation, speed increases, and cost reductions.”
(Translation: Microsoft partners, we mean you no harm.)
“However, what the cloud and enterprise networks find challenging is integrating the radically different software running on each different type of switch into a cloud-wide network management platform. Ideally, we would like all the benefits of the features we have implemented and the bugs we have fixed to stay with us, even as we ride the tide of newer switch hardware innovation.”
(Translation: Software-defined networking (SDN) is a very fine idea.)
But it appears Redmond couldn't find SDN code to fits its particular needs, as it says ACS “... focuses on feature development based on Microsoft priorities” and “allows us to debug, fix, and test software bugs much faster. It also allows us the flexibility to scale down the software and develop features that are required for our datacenter and our networking needs.”
ACS is designed to use the Switch Abstraction Interface (SAI), an OpenCompute effort that offers an API to program ASICs inside network devices.
Microsoft's post revealing ACS says a fair bit about its features, but doesn't explain the relationship between Microsoft and Linux. Perhaps the complexity of the world's switching ecosystem was the reason: Redmond says it has demonstrated ACS across with “four ASIC vendors (Mellanox, Broadcom, Cavium, and the Barefoot software switch), six implementations of SAI (Broadcom, Dell, Mellanox, Cavium, Barefoot, and Metaswitch), and three applications stacks (Microsoft, Dell, and Metaswitch).”
Subramaniam's post ends by letting us know: “We’re talking about ACS publicly as we believe this approach of disaggregating the switch software from the switch hardware will continue to be a growing trend in the networking industry and we would like to contribute our insights and experiences of this journey starting here.”
That experience clearly includes Linux, not Windows, as the path to SDN.
Satya Nadella's Microsoft is a very different animal, unafraid to use any technology if it gets the job done. But Microsoft building a Linux? Wow. Just wow. ®

Skalar:
Петроније, десетка иде и на слабијим машинама. Оне које су радиле са 7-8, без проблема ће радити и са 10. Сви процесори са два и више језгара са лакоћом погоне 10, мада то без великог напора раде и они бржи са једним језгром, а довољно је чак и 1 Гб РАМ меморије, мада са 2 ради комотно, а са 4 и више лети. Мислим, лети онолико колико то Виндовси могу да лете.
Ко инсталише 10 мора да се суочи са сумњом да је НАЈВЕРОВАТНИЈЕ способна да препозна пиратски софтвер. Више пута сам проверавао и дошао до закључка да на мом компјутеру нешто заблокира рад пиратског Корела 17 кад је на 10, а кад га вратим на 7 ради без проблема. С обзиром да направим имиџ копију система кад га инсталишем у фулу, са свим програмима и играма, није ми тешко да мењам оперативни систем. Тренутно имам имиџ за 7 и за 10, па сам последњих дана више пута стављао један па други и сваки пут Корел заблокира на 10. Закључио сам да је то оно о чему се све отвореније шушка по форумима.
Све остало ради како треба на 10, за сада, видећу шта ће се збивати у будућности. Мада, моја препорука за све кориснике 7 да не прелазе на 10 док не буду морали, тј док не изађу нове верзије старих програма које ће условљавати да на машини буде 10 - код 10 нема напретка у олакшаном коришћењу, нема побољшања у брзини, Кортана је дудук ког сам искључио после десетак минута експериментисања, а једино што ми се допада је много мање циганског шаренила него код претходних Виндовса. Ова препорука не мора бити обавезно и исправна - можда ће неко доћи до закључка да је 10 откровење у односу на све досадашње Виндовсе. Све је препуштено искуству и личним афинитетима.
Савет за оне који набаце 10 - постоји мали програм, именом Do Not Spy 10, бесплатан је и има га около на мрежи, ког препоручујем за инсталацију, јер може да искључи мноштво опција из 10 које отворено служе за праћење активности, приватности и свега осталог што се ради на компј.

Skalar:
Појавило се још програма, који имају намену да спрече шпијунирање нас од стране 10.

OOSU10
Disable Win Tracking

Има их на мрежи. Ја сам покренуо ова два и онај претходни који сам препоручио (Do Not Spy 10), дакле сва три редом и поискључивао све што се може уз њихову помоћ искључити. 10 и даље ради без икаквих проблема. Чак сам инсталисао и одиграо комплетну (са варањем тј. тренером) Кал оф дјути адванс варфер. Није било сметњи. Што значи да ова три програма изгледа раде посао и спречавају 10 да нас шпијунира, ако он то уопште и ради. Још ћу кад нађем времена инсталисати Корел 17, па ако и он буде радио као што ради на 7, онда ће то дефинитивно бити доказ да 10 може препознати пиратерију, али и да се то препознавање може спречити.
Да додам још нешто, кад вам већ трошим драгоцено време: бесплатан Авира анитивирус и бесплатан Комодо фајервол одлично раде код мене на 10, слажу се и, што је најважније, не заузимају пуно ресурса нити успоравају компјутер. Додуше, генерално немам проблема са ресурсима, али мислим да би овај пар заштитара подлично радио на слабијим и просечним машинама. Пробајте, не губите ништа, само можете добити.
Но, и даље сам мишљења да се не треба прелазити на 10 док год 7 и 8 раде радњу.
