now gets $10B in revenue from 'services' and it's their biggest growth market. As they transition from a hardware maker to a services company, there's nothing to motivate them to preserve their privacy stance.

And they won't, because doing so would put them at a huge disadvantage over other 'services' companies. Windows is already a 'service' and how di that work out for that pesky privacy of yours?

Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
