    Windows 10 Users Rail Against Microsoft Bloatware


    In addition to some pre-installed Windows 10 apps, Microsoft is also bundling others belonging to third parties, including Candy Crush Saga, a game that has already proved to be very successful on mobile platforms.
    But on Windows 10, users donít seem to be very excited about the idea of having their PCs attacked by bloatware, and in a post in the Feedback app, they ask Microsoft not necessarily to remove unwanted apps, but to let them do that manually.

    I would not mind keeping them If I have space and the unused apps doesn't affect my device performance.

    Same here, they just remain unused, no biggie in my opinion. I uninstalled a bunch in the beginning, but then my system was downloading lib files many times a day, for apps that weren't there any more, so I reinstalled the app and now have peace.

    I will simply say, Microsoft has bundled only useful and popular apps. There is nothing like bloatware. It's true that they are collecting data.

    MS is collecting data on app usage and nothing else.

    Wouldn't be nice to go back in time when most users weren't even connected to the Internet and you had to install, for example, Encyclopedia Britannica from a 7 DVD package?
    No? I didn't think so.

    Or like, 70 floppy disks.

    I beg to differ.
    Bloatware is bloatware, whether it comes from HP, Microsoft, or any software manufacturer.
    If it is not OK with you when you get it with a new laptop then it is not going to be OK with you if you get it with your OS or AV Program.
    Some people are very OCD when it comes to their Personal Computers and want to be in complete control of what happens to them. All of these intrusions that change and configure the machine without the owners knowledge or consent is annoying at best.

    That said, if Microsoft is going to stick with the plan of not rolling out a new version of Windows, but simply upgrading Windows 10 in place, then they are going to need to find an alternate way to make money from the OS, and selling rights to have your time-sink game automatically included would be a logical way to do that.

    This does not make me a Luddite wishing I had my dial-up modem back.
    It means I am concerned that we are moving towards a world where you only get to rent your life and you don't get to actually own or control anything - your digital life anyways.
