    Should we start to learn Mandarin or is it released in English also? :)

    they want only them to spy on Chinese citizens , not others :D

    let go uber-paranoid:

    maybe this is just disinformation, and they asked MS to reroute the telemetry to their own servers :p

    Even more ironic is how our own governments spend decades teaching us all about the notority of the Chinese and Russians for thier surveillance of their own citizens and then.....

    To get any privacy from Windows at all you need to use a version prior to Vista.

    I have a blacklist of telemetry URL's a mile long in my router, but there are always more.

    You don't need the G version, as I explained over here. In fact it's more insecure because you not get security updates.

    Why would China want an OS that doesn't receive security updates

    Because (according to their logic) it might break stuff or change system files which is unwanted, like certificates, dns related things and more. In the environment this OS is used there will be no internet (I assume) or if then only lan which is controlled by an admin to review each change.
