Windows 10 users banned from some websites

We’re definitely in a different era — at this point you need to assume that everything you use is sending data back to somebody, and that includes your operating system. 
If you’re really worried about privacy, it’s probably time to switch to Linux.

Indeed, it is time for LINUX!

Personally, my system will soon go back to dual-booting. Linux will again be my main OS.
