Windows 10 and the rumors of a keylogger

I have been looking at quite a few websites/ boards with people stating that Windows 10 Preview has a keylogger sending data back to Microsoft. My question is quite simple as I am skeptical about this claim. If Microsoft is sharing a preview of it’s next OS, doesn’t everyone know there are different reporting functions built in? Aren’t you signing up to be a tester by installing it in this stage? Of course you are. Nobody should be surprised that data is piping out to Microsoft. But a keylogger sending everything we type back to Microsoft? I find that a little bit over the top to believe. Keeping it simple here. Check out this link for more information.
