If you opt into the Windows ecosystem, there's no point in complaining about leaking private info. If you care about this, you should choose to run an OS that you control.

Not all of us are all-in on the ecosystem. Personally, I just want to play some games and occasionally do some reverse engineering. Just for that, which was perfectly possible in the past, I should be forced to give up private info?

I'm not saying that building software which does not respect privacy is good. I'm saying that if you choose to use software that is designed by companies that are clearly motivated to monetize your personal info, then that is a trade-off which you accept. Render unto Caesar.
