Good move on Microsoft's part to finally come clean about the telemetry inside Windows 10. There are many people who have refused to upgrade because of the data collection from Microsoft. Perhaps with the increased transparency it will give more people the peace of mind needed to make the switch.

From improving in-product control, transparency and information about your privacy, while providing a complete list of the diagnostic data collected at the Basic level, among others, to launching the Microsoft Privacy Dashboard and the enhancements we’ve made since then, we want you to be able to easily see and manage your activity data online across multiple Microsoft services.
