[QUOTE=biggles77;2778609]Guys, don’t forget the “Anniversary Update” that is supposedly due August 2nd (USA time) and is likely to remove any of your attempts to neuter the unwanted parts of the spy software called Windows 10. [/QUOTE]
Posted in another thread and so I reply on topic here
With that said, nothing new under the sun I would say. They have constantly reduced the tools and options available to the user ever since Windows 2000 which still occurs to me as the most functional Windows version.
They started by removing the advanced tools for administering and repair the OS, and now they continue by hardening their control of user privileges and software distribution which as I say will lead to medium to advanced users wanting to restrict Windows update from running at all. Then the tools will come along to aid novices in this task. I mean, who the heck needs to be force fed games, leisure and social media applications? Personally since it is available to me, I notice I do install the Enterprise N LTSB edition more and more often to remove bloat.
[QUOTE=roho;2778613]Windows 10 Pro is still the main software for smaller businesses and there is absolutely no call for Microsoft to turn these features off to try and force people onto the Enterprise version, which is whyt they have done it.
It’s one thing to take stuff out of the OS before it’s released, it’s another to remove it afterwards. I suspect even more people are getting rather fed up with Microsoft over stupid stunts like this.[/QUOTE]
Users disagreeing with Microsoft’s move with Windows 10 are being creative and while it is not entirely possible to get all the way there for most, you do not have to search too long to find a script than makes your installation an officially non existent Windows 10 Pro LTSB with all Windows bloat removed. I see this as the same as jailbreaking or rooting any other OS which I think is good.
