    Informal poll on "clean" Windows 10.


    Hi,

    I get a little frustrated with Windows 10 changing my associations and worse when it updates. I have been wishing for a "clean" OS-only version for years. Just wondering how you guys feel about it.

    Here's the question:

    If all stores in your area sold Windows 10 Pro for US$100, how much would you pay for a clean OS-only version? Would you pay more, or less for a version with no browser, media player, AV, etc etc etc etc?


    Me, $125

    Cheers,

    Bob A.

    I would simply get annoyed at the unjustifiable pricing policy that makes things so cheap in US but screws the rest of the world.

    I remember paying $40 for Win8; so, I would consider $50 a reasonable price for Win10.

    LTSB Doesn’t Include the Store, Cortana, Edge, and Other Apps.

    Microsoft Doesn’t Want You Using Windows 10 LTSB.

    Because Windows 10 LTSB is only available for the Enterprise edition of Windows 10, you also get all the Enterprise-only features you can’t get on the Home and Professional editions of Windows 10.

    Unofficially, any Windows user can get Windows 10 LTSB if they want. Microsoft offers ISO images with Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB as part of its 90-day Enterprise evaluation program. You can download the ISO file–be sure to select “Windows 10 LTSB” instead of “Windows 10” when downloading–and install it on your own PC. It’ll function normally for 90 days, after which it’ll begin nagging you to activate Windows. But Windows 10 is perfectly functional even without activation, so you should be able to use it as long as you like without entering a product key. You’ll just have to put up with nag screens.

    Hi,
    Now the clean versions are only available if one lives in the Europe region so quite expensive

    It's either that or rent win-10 which is a yearly or monthly rate I forget
    Lastly the education version which might come free if one goes to a school that provides it.;
    Otherwise it is not unreasonable to pay 200.us for 10 pro version without all the added intrusions imho
    Problem is MS doesn't see things that way with the intrusions well free is what they give pretty much why 10 is just something to fart around with a little and reboot to win-7 when done

    Would you pay more for the current version, or a fictitional clean version?

    I know, I know, but the poll has only 2 choices. Which is more appealing/valuable to you, the current version, or a clean, OS - only version, and what you would pay?

    No, I would not pay extra. I install standard Windows 10 Pro, uninstall everything it will let me uninstall that I don't want, unpin the rest from the start screen and I'm very happy.
