Yup, that's right Microsoft are using Vista to collect user data. I've been saying it for ages, but it's nice to know some well respected sources agree with me.
Now maybe some of you trust Microsoft with all this information and think it's fine, the "so what I have nothing to hide" approach, but what if it gets into the wrong hands. There are plenty of opportunities between your computer and Redmond for an unscrupulous sort to try and steal data, as we all know Microsoft operating systems aren't exactly renowned for having unbeatable security. How long can it be before the first virus/trojan/etc. comes along that takes advantage of all that user data? It sounds bad enough if you're a home user, but businesses must be having kittens over this.
