    Well that's the way all computers are. They gotta have something on there and a lot of it can be useful.

    I'd rather pay MS a one time price to avoid their non system critical data gathering all together, oh, that's right remember when you paid for Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8? LOL

    MS should offer a paid version that avoids all this added crap, if you want to choose it. They could offer the same for OEM machines as an option, I would GLADLY pay several hundred to avoid the "free" version of Windows 10.

    On the desktop I'm using now I'm using a Version of Win 10 that was paid for and not a free gift. It's no different then the free upgraded version of Win10. All strings still attached.

    I got some bad news for you. In Win8 MS collected telemetry and with that data they determined the usage of the start screen and from all of that information they decided to drop it from Win10.

    Yes,, this would be best and if you do post news get it from a better source. Blog posts like this just stir things up and generate more heat than light on the subject.

    All Apps and Programs that are not inbuilt into the W10 O/S.....ie-.....Candy Crush or any other can be easily removed by opening All apps (under power button) and right clicking mouse where the option to uninstall is revealed.

    While I have zero issues with someone removing these apps I personally can see no reason to do so. If the PC has more than 30gb of storage removing them is not going to free up enough space to justify the effort and to top it off when a new build is dropped to users they have to.. re-remove the apps again.

    I've found over the years that the best way to keep an OS stable is to do as little modifying it.. yup. The less you do the more likely you'll have issues. Modifying the registry.. bad idea. Just a bad idea. The more it's changed the more likely the system will be unstable.

    I got the offer for candy crush and I put it on ignore(don't offer again) and it didn't install.

    In case of TLDR.. the less you do the more stable the PC is and there is zero reason to remove unused apps. IMO
