You should trust Microsoft in the same way that you'd trust a serial-rapist to not violently rape you.
In other words, NOT AT ALL.
Microsoft has more than distinctly declared it's intent to ILLEGALLY SPY ON YOU (in criminal violation of the Federal Espionage Acts).
Microsoft has also declared that they intend for yourself and your children to become their slaves.
And you trust the angry mob to always be around to save your butt?
The best lasting answer is to demand that Microsoft's CORPORATE CHARTER is permanently revoked and all executives in Microsoft are legally excluded from ever seeking employment in any similar field of employment.
