Feedback Questions Are Now Mandated in Windows 10 Previews

Microsoft has taken another step in ensuring that it has a wealth of customer data concerning its latest operating system. Starting with Windows 10 build 14271, which was released last Wednesday and is currently the latest build within the Insider preview program, users no longer have the ability to adjust the feedback functionality that is built into the operating system. As a result, those who are a part of the Windows Insider Program and are utilizing the latest builds of Windows 10 will notice more frequent requests for feedback after making use of a specific feature or aspect of the Microsoft operating system. Gabriel Aul, the Engineering General Manager for Microsoft's Operating Systems Group, noted that "Starting with Build 14271 and newer, the frequency in which Windows will ask for your feedback will be locked to 'Automatically (Recommended)' in the Settings app and managed by the Windows Insider Program." Aul also revealed that if users are not comfortable with the recent change made by Microsoft, that they should abandon the Insider program and revert back to the latest production build.

Despite the feedback settings change that is now incorporated into the latest builds of Windows 10 under the Insider preview program, it seems that users are still able to ignore the myriad of feedback pop-ups that make themselves present, without any consequence.

I guess that when the OS is free, ~you~ are the product.
