So does this mean if I create the USB bootable and DVD bootable this update will be include it that as well? Or was that include I thought I saw this in Windows 10 Pro install options? Did anyone else see this or not?

So if one recreates the bootable USB or dvd then it will have those updates ready to go. I think with Windows 10 Pro installation on my Dell 1525 - I saw these options.

So are they are still not allowing you to turn “telemetry” off, just turn it down a bit.

This is all will and good appearing during setup but what about when Windows 10 decides to reset settings, including privacy settings, without you knowing? It seems to like doing that quite a lot.

Microsoft: we’re still collecting your data, but we’re supposedly collecting less of it, while giving you, the “valued” customer, a(n illusion of) choice as to what gets shared.

Exactly “illusion of choice” there was never a choice with Windows 10 and the forced updates Microsoft would have done better to not have forced it down peoples throats.

Seems like a step in the right direction. Just because modern technology makes it easy to retrieve customer data doesn’t mean you should.   I think companies need to resist the temptations of the 21st century.

I manually disable telemetry in win10, but that’s something that should be optional to the customer.  It’s people’s biggest complaint about windows 10. The funny part is it will come out of a giant update, which is my 2nd biggest complaint about win10.  How they rollout big OS updates every year that basically reinstall the OS and break stuff.

Outside of those two things i’ve been pretty happy with win10.  It’s been a pretty solid OS for me. Like older versions of windows i’ve been able to customize out the things I don’t like.

When you turn settings off in Windows 10 they should stay off not turn back on when you do an update or reboot your computer LOL.
