    Hi everyone. Now that I just heard that the Windows 8 upgrade will be offered for cheap, I'm seriously considering getting it. Does anyone know of any privacy concerns related to Windows 8 that aren't present in Windows 7?

    Frankly that's a bit spooky. I'm not inclined to upgrade unless there was a way that I could block incoming kill switch orders.

    Everyone is the boss of Windows 8 except the user this is included but not limited to: Microsoft, Government, Developers.

    You are nothing but their pet as of Windows 8. Rollover and be a good boy.
