[liberationtech] Question about Windows 10

Hello folks,

I need some advice about upgrading to Windows 10.   My laptop is running Windows 8 and I need to do the free upgrade to Win 10 because I have a lot of applications that run on Windows and I feel it is time to upgrade to the newest Windows O.S. But I really don't want my personal data collected in Windows 10 either.

I recently read that Microsoft could be releasing data controls that actually allow privacy (http://www.ghacks.net/2016/02/11/microsoft-promises-to-implement-full-windows-10-data-tracking-controls/) but I'm not holding my breath. If I upgrade to Windows 10, what can I do to control personal privacy?  I heard that the Enterprise version of Windows 10 would let me have more privacy and not collect my data.

How are you all dealing with upgrading to Windows 10 so that you can still control your own personal data?  Thanks for your thoughts.
