The question isn't about the spy capabilities. It's about whether these tools are used without logging and review by elected officials from the Congressional security committees.

On the March 6, 2017 Tucker Carlson show, Congressman Jim Hines admitted Congress (and his committee) is not conducting any meaningful oversight of the spy agencies.

Windows 7 is actually pretty damn good.

It was. Beginning in Feb., the updates made it unstable and caused application to not open. I had to remove the updates and disable updating, so security took a hit.

I ended up removing Windows 7 from my desktop and laptop and installing Linux Mint 18, Cinnamon edition on them. I haven't regretted it one second.
