[liberationtech] Question about Windows 10

Hey y'all,

I was originally going to only reply to Peter's question about how to
wrest some control back from M$, but this might be something that others
aren't aware exists and could make use of. If one must run Windows then
I'd advise them to seriously consider running the Tron Script to cut
down on some of the shady stuff that Windows does with your data.

Link to Tron Script subreddit where you can find the latest download link

I hope this is able to help some folks out.
