You know you are screwing up when the Electronic Frontier Foundation comes after you like this. I'm not sure why they waited until after the Windows 10 upgrade program ended before writing this but hopefully Microsoft takes heed anyway.

We at EFF have heard from many users who have asked us to take action, and we urge Microsoft to listen to these concerns and incorporate this feedback into the next release of its operating system. Otherwise, Microsoft may find that it has inadvertently discovered just how far it can push its users before they abandon a once-trusted company for a better, more privacy-protective solution.
