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.
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.
