Comment Re:Win10 is good OS that has bolted-on malware (Score 1) 171

People don't mind being spied on. Well, they say they do, but they really don't, otherwise they would do something to stop it.

People have a lot of space they scarcely/ever use. But why just hackers? When we start doing good, let's extend it to other professions. In no time, you will have two attorneys in the attic, a group of gangsters in the garage, a Romanian refugee in the refrigerator, an established loan-shark in the lounge, few pick-pockets in the patio, a visionary in the vestibule, and maybe even a killer in the kitchen.

But what if those people start interacting with each other?
