[liberationtech] Question about Windows 10

Dear Peter,

You do still have the possibility to use two different systems, e.g.
Linux/OSX for important data and Windows for the rest.
If this is no solution for you then you can just stay with Windows 8;
ignore the "feeling" that you need to upgrade.
"Never change a running system."

Kinds,

Andreas

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.

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.
