I'm not worried about privacy, it's more a matter of all the programs that won't run on an upgraded system. Windows 10 might be free, but the updates on all the other programs I have are not. On a PC, it's always good to have a dual hard drive system anyway, one with Windows and the other with Linux.

Never said to. However, like I said in my previous post the article makes it sound that without windows 10 you have privacy which is not the case.
The only way I know of to get privacy is to disconnect your PC from the internet, which should work pretty well regardless of operating system, as long as you keep it disconnected.
Linux is better, but even with linux, you still don't have privacy. Tor, maybe more but when I try to use that I get a lot of sites blocked by cloudflare which I guess doesn't like tor exit nodes.

While I value privacy and freedom highly, I get the feeling this is nothing more than a mud-slinging article.

I'm not up to date anymore. What happened to Windows 9? Have I completed missed something?
oes that slow the machine down?
I won't be going to Windows 10; but I have PC games that require the Windows platform. I'm thinking of simply keeping Windows 7 and using Linux for the Internet side of things.

Well what operating system should people use that's secure? Besides Linux.
Google, Apple, Microsoft, are all in bed with the government now a days. Its sad yes and in many circumstances is an infringement on 4th Ammendment rights. But oh well let's keep voting for the big government folk and corporate sellouts.
