I went to install VC++ 2010 Express Beta2 and found this little gem:

jMerliN - Finally Microsoft is being truthful - RaGEZONE Forums


Normally I opt out since I don't like to read the privacy statement to see what they will and won't send to MS and what they can and can't do with that data.

But it's nice to see finally that Microsoft is just saying: duck you, I'm going to send this poop anyway, read the damn privacy agreement. Nice touch, you damn douchebags.

Hmm, I think the reason they can do that is since it is a beta, all data is supposed to be sent to them so they can use it for patching up to RC, I doubt that it will be like that on actual finished product. Someone would try and sue them. >_<

I read somewhere that they were forcing it in beta versions to catch bugs faster or something. However they will make it optional when released to the general public.

yep i agree with this. what would be the point of doing beta if people jus opt out of sending in bug reports and if any or no issues were found during installing.

Isn't beta for testing & only send info when something is wrong?
But forcing to send info during beta is what I dont get.
Anyhow you can't click "next" if you have not read the privacy policy. So, why auto-checked it?
If that is so, whats the use of beta test?
I'm confuse.

Maybe you should read the privacy statement for the 2010 prerelease versions before you actually use them so you don't flip the duck out over nothing? It clearly explains how to turn off the data sending after you install the beta.
