Not only has Microsoft captured the "telemetry of uninstalling" but it's also some of the most exhaustively examined data. As far as I understand it, the main reason for rolling back appears to be driver issues.
What I have found is that, when I write code like I would for a team, I tend to re-use those modules, bits and pieces in many more projects; so the payoff is actually quite good in the long run. Furthermore, after a few months have passed I always regret when I have not documented those re-usable pieces well enough.
I know I'm replying to a comment in a pretty old story, but I thought that it may be of interest to you. You could install OpenWRT in a VM and route your computer's internet connection through that. No dongle required.
That does not beat my take on bypassing security: saving said password into a macro to achieve "automatic login". It also prevented me from taking the guilt trip to the IT dept. because I forgot my password AGAIN, since they made us change it every few weeks. To get to that macro someone had to get to my computer when it was unlocked anyway, so I did not find my own actions terribly wrong.
Moreover, the article seems to make the assumption that "feedback" is strictly freeform text or questionnaires. The truth is, 99.9% of the feedback is actually telemetry data so, yes, the more the merrier.
Let me question your doubts with some facts. Two major insurance companies and one (huge) banking institution located in the midwest pay between $70,000 and $80,000 a year as of mid 2013 for senior-level positions. I know that from going to their interviews myself, and they were very desperately looking for people. Albeit not desperately enough to raise the pay...
