Microsoft has admitted that the new Windows 10 operating system tracks keystrokes and examines audio input. The new operating system, currently a free download for users with Windows 7 and Windows 8 licences, not only tracks how long it takes to open different types of files, the make and model of device you're using, but it's also logging keystrokes and collecting voice recordings. Microsoft will not delete data already collected from Windows 10 users.

They are really trying hard to match the likes of Sony with bundled malware, aren't they? I refuse to use their stuff. Haven't run a Windows box at home in years, and only ran one on the job because it was required of me.

Do you think they'll take the keylogger out of the final release, just disable it by default, or just comment out the code? I'm betting the second option as a backdoor.
