Windows 10: Unwanted Installation

    Unwanted Installation

    Today I have noticed in the list of installed programs a new fresh (today) installation "Microsoft OneDrive". I was not asked to accept this installation, I was even not notified it was installed on my computer. Now I do not know who owns my computer, microsoft or me.
    I can understand installation of updates, but this...?
    And by the way, I am even not notified about a new installed system update, only sometimes I open the "View updates History", there I see a new update and sometimes "Restart is required.."
    So my qustion is how to stop this Microsoft's offensive behaviour.
    Answers will be appreciated.

    It's somewhat known as SaaS Software as a Service or WaaS Windows as a Service. There will continuing Version Upgrades [so far twice a year] and Build updates [monthly or maybe more often].

    So my qustion is how to stop this Microsoft's offensive behaviour.
    Maybe a version of Linux with the LTS/Long Term Support? I like Linux Mint but there's a number of other versions available, maybe more than 100 and all also free. Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.
    There are a number of free programs available that are cross-platform such as LibreOffice and VLC/VideoLAN.
