i recently received the offer for a free update from windows 7 to windows 10. i was thinking about accepting, but then i started to read reviews that there are ads all over the place, that it sucks up bandwidth and does all sorts of things in the background that i may not like.
i am a very private person and i run a very lean pc. i hate it when programs hijack my cpu or use my personal information to sell me things. i want to know if this is really a serious problem on windows 10 or if some of these reviews i've read are just from petty people. additionally, i'd love to know if there are ways to adjust settings so that i can maintain strict control over my pc and my personal information.
does anyone have windows 10 and if so, would they mind sharing some relevant experiences? i would especially be interested in differences between windows 7 and 10, but obviously any discussion is welcome.
