  • Linux Lite: 3.2 64bit
Hello,

in a news story to my phone this morning, published by the express newspaper, is a story about how Microsoft's default setting for Windows 10 updates has (and will continue to) be sharing users files on the internet by default settings.

In response to the newspaper Microsoft claimed this was to speed up slow update speeds. Saying this hidden process could be changed in the advanced update settings options.
Why they neglected to tell their users of this, well... they obviously do not feel privacy is important ::)

I thought it was another good example of why changing to Linux Lite will immediately improve a Windows 10 users privacy, by default ;) setting, and without them having to wait for any newspaper story.

I hope it may help any community members when speaking to those around them about Linux and why exactly it is a better option for their computers, and their privacy.
