Windows 10 Support Discontinue

January 1st, 2017 at midnight EST

Q: Why are we discontinuing Windows 10 support?

A: Since the launch of Windows 10 back in July of 2015, Microsoft and its lawyers have drafted a privacy policy that basically grants them the right to watch every move you make from your email messages to the contents of your files on your PC.  Basically, any confidential information you have on your PC is compromised.  You do not have any privacy when using Windows 10.

Q: What Microsoft is collecting from me?

A: Just about everything you do, for instance:

Q: When Microsoft collects everything I do, what are they going to do with it?


Q: Where can I read the Windows 10 privacy policy?

A: Right here!

Q: Am I affected on this blackout?

A: According to your HTTP headers that your browser has sent to us, no!  You will not be affected by the blackout date!

Q: Now I know that myself or someone else I know will be affected by the blackout date?  What are my alternative operating systems?


  1. Install a Linux-based operating system.  Most versions are free!
  2. Purchase a Mac computer.
  3. Purchase a tablet that is not Windows 10-based such as an iPad or Android tablet.

Q: What privacy protection options I have on my alternative Operating System?


  1. Install Firefox and use Private Browsing.
  2. Install Disconnect on the web browser you normally use.
  3. Turn on Do Not Track.

Q: When is the blackout date?

A: At midnight on January 1st, 2017.

Q: Is Do Not Track turned on in my browser?

A: No

Q: I do agree that data mining is a problem!  How can I resist or even stop data mining?

A: For Microsoft, contact them and tell them to change the privacy policy.  Otherwise, contact your member of congress to introduce legislation to stop data mining and make it illegal!  Until then, we are discontinuing support for Windows 10.


Q: The FCC is proposing new privacy rules.  How will this affect me?

A: Keep up the good work!  Keep pressuring for new legislation and rules like what the FCC is proposing!  However, it only affects Internet Service Providers such as Charter Spectrum, AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
