It is your machine and you live and learn with hardware and software.

For me I wouldn't block all outbound traffic and only block some installed individual software from phoning home.

This software would not be integral to the machine but just add ons and shouldn't be MS or your antivirus software.

Blocking MS with their own firewall is an interesting tactic though. :)
