    Presumably because they are In the "Box" when you buy the computer. That is, they come with the computer.
    And then you go through the 'Out of Box Experience' steps when you open the box.

    Hmmm. All the ones they mention above as inbox apps can be uninstalled (and I have)
    ...inbox apps in Windows 10 such as Photos, Skype, Groove, and Movies & TV.
    I suppose "Inbox" just means included. Like when you buy a motorcycle helmet you'll always get some stickers in the box. You don't really want them so you give them to your kid or something. The kid loves them and Arai get some advertising in the playground.

    I really wish they would provide an ISO without any of these apps though - just the store so you can download what you want. No need to make multiple ISO - just make one with Store App and nothing else at all. You want a calculator? Download it. You want News or Weather or Candy Crush and Minecraft? Download 'em.

    In the Fall Update they have dropped 3D Builder so that is a tiny start I suppose. They are keeping the other 35 (for me) pointless apps but the (for me) pointless 3D builder now has to be downloaded from the store which is quite right and proper. If I buy a 3D printer and it is the right app for the job I'll certainly know where to go

    EDIT

    That is a more concise way of putting it than my rambling effort - well done

    Groove and Photos have "Uninstall" greyed out for me. I'm guessing you must have used powershell to remove those?

    Good, I thought it was kind of lame to have two builds in one ring.
