For the record, I'm not personally opposed to the telemetry in
Windows, in context. But I am curious whether the data gathered by
Microsoft could deanonymize a Tor user by, eg, pinpointing Tor usage
within a specific time frame, given a number of assumptions about an
observer's ability to correlate multiple visits to a surveilled site
and so on. I imagine Microsoft would not willingly divulge such info
("tell us everything about everyone using Tor at these moments" isn't
much of a warrant) but the possibility is what interests me.

My guess is that the answer is probably no, at least not practically,
but I wouldn't want to stake my life on it.
