Windows 10’s services agreement: the operating system has the right to scan all software and hardware on your computer and disable anything it believes is illegal.” – Forbes

Incredible.

The writing is on the wall: in the future your software will nanny your every move, will spy on you, will stop you from doing things it thinks you shouldn’t, will report you to authorities, or your employer… or just store your info on a server to be sold to some ad agency except sorry that server was hacked.

Sure eventually there will be options: the software will remain free but you will have to pay to opt out of nags and spying and possibly bandwidth throttling and whatever other ways they figure out how to frack you of value. Privacy & control will be available for those who can afford it.
