    Look at all this shit you gotta put up with, with Windows. Just fucking use Ubuntu already and actually get your computer back.

    Yes and no. For a normal user sure. In a sensitive network you don't want these data flows leaving your network because you don't control them.

    If they do some searching they can easily find downloadable registry files that make turning Cortana off/on a breeze. But the average Win10 user is most likely oblivious to Cortana and other data mining. They just want to browse the web, play games, etc. For those in the dark it's not going to matter.
