I agree with you Jon about being stuck with Microsoft, they make things so easy but crappy at the same time. There are so many alternatives out there but companies have to use Microsoft because they have been using it since the beginning and relying too much on it. Windows 10 new and approved thanks to copying other OS which is done by millions of hours of volunteering work. Same goes to development platform, as a developer we always face dilemma of .NET vs JAVA, I agree .NET has very nice studio framework but Java also achieved that level on Eclipse platform.
It is very annoying when you have to use certain programs like Chrome or Firefox in certain cases otherwise things does not work properly. We should be allowed to make our own choice and freedom. As you already mention about the spying, it is happening by everyone and that's how they are making billions to sell our information to everyone out there.
