Windows 10 is known to come with a lot of telemetry and other “features” that reduce privacy in order to work as “software as a service”. Thankfully, there’s an effort to ameliorate this…

    PSA: While it's possible to mimic what Windows 10 Ameliorated does through Group Policy without pulling features, Windows 10 Ameliorated directly removes the components responsible for phoning home.

    You can also use: flings.vmware.com/vmware-os-optimization-tool It's for optimization of vm's ... don't run all the optimizations on a live PC :) without a backup. It has a lot of "cleanups" , no extra install stuff. It has some cleanups to windows like: old superseeded files , disable update, optimize .net for native and more. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK :)

    How about removing whatever in Windows 10 deletes things? That's the reason I went to Win 8.1 instead after it deleted about 150 of my files, all videos and saved web pages, not pirated things like they claimed.

    Why is my Win10 system prompting me on politics like Black Lives Matter on my login screen? This is my comptuer which I paid for, it's not an ad platform or a platform for your political views. Get that trash off of my computer. I should be able to watch news on my time when I choose, not when I login to my PC to receive messages demanding I educate myself on your politics. I have no news apps enabled and have not approved this feature, it's not something I can disable.

    Your show is awesome!! I just installed Linux Ubuntu. Windows 10 crashed several times. It's pretty good, but trying to install third party software is a pain using the terminal interface. I hear repeatedly that Linux doesn't need an antivirus, but I still want to be on the safe side. Where can I find an antivirus on ubuntu ?

    Dude, honestly though. If your computer is to garbage to run Windows 10 than you should get a new computer. A 300 dollar HP runs it just fine. The newest Windows 10 is sweet, plus with multi-touch mousepad I have all kinds of fun shortcuts. Also, the new Edge is built off Chromium and it's actually pretty light and fast to be honest. And you know what, One Drive is way nicer than Google Drive, Microsoft is stepping up their game.

    not so fun fact: you can block all the telemetry connections as windows tries to phone home using that glasswire program(but its trial and you have to pay if you want to continue to use all the selling point features). it gives popup for anything trying to connect to the internet. was suprized at how many and how frequent windows and other program keep connecting to the internet.
