I hope there is some sort of awareness campaign happening across the pond, then. This is the most egregious technological privacy violation I've ever seen. For older people, it needs to be explained as the same as 48 organizations having access to the content of every individual slip of paper and written word in your house at any time they want it. Orwell would have blushed at the audacity.

You still watch OTA broadcast stations? I don't even have an antenna hooked up to my TV anymore.

I do because it supplements netflix/other internet option well with all the local free content I need (don't have cable or sat tv). I get about 60 channels. Now granted probably 50 of them are crap, but I get CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, and Fox for free. Granted this only works if you're within range of the broadcast antennas.

I can't believe ANYONE associated with this dev could think this was a good idea. It's possible you could have a user or two make serious threats, but 100? Sorry, didn't happen.

And if you make games so bad as to inspire 100 people to send you death threats, maybe you should re-evaluate your chosen career...

Many/most of the major AAA titles, unless they run under Wine. Steam has helped a lot with Linux gaming, but there are still a ton of games that won't run native on Linux. That is the only thing that has kept me from switching on my gaming machine at home. I "upgraded" to Win10 a while back and now wish I hadn't. I've turned off/blocked as much as MS allows me to turn off/block, but that's not all that much really. And now Cortana is coming back. Wonderful.
