Yeah, that's a problem, can literally read anything on the 'net but without references it's impossible to say whether it's true. Bloatware will always be subjective for individuals as to whether to keep or not. Generally any modification by a third-party of a distributed work for sale violates the EULA/End User License Agreement. Also any such modifications are subject to being reinstalled at the next Version Upgrade or sometimes by a Build update just as custom settings made by a user may get reset. But then I've never had to purchase a copy of Win10 for the several computers I have working so the no-cost inclusion of things not needed isn't a problem for me. Keeping Windows as delivered can help me at times working on clients' computers, lets me see what they see, also why I have 3 versions of Windows running.I read on the internet
If by bloat ware you mean 'free' trial software etc try Novatech (/www.novatech.co.uk/) We've used them for years and they claim never to add adware etc. They build their own machines and / or to your spec Very good after sales and technical help as wellI read on the internet that it's possible to buy bloatware-free Windows. Maybe it was about an older version of Windows not Windows 10.
Is it possible to buy a bloatware-free version of Windows 10 - either Home or Pro or both?
It should be *MY* choice of what is on *my* machine. If I don't want an app or application, it is up to me and only me whether that app or application should stay on my system. Doesn't matter whether each one individually consumes little memory or CPU. They presumably use some, and therefore are using resources I have not authorized them to use. And any bit of superfluous code is yet more potential for critical bugs or vulnerabilities. Not to mention how many of these unwanted apps have the tendency to steal file associations from applications I DO want to use.Why get stressed about it , anyway. The majority of users have overkill, as far as space is concerned. imho, the word bloatware is not correct, bt that is arguable. By definition it is "unwanted" software. There are, I am sure, a large percentage of users who want to basically install an OS and then have the facilities to do all the basic tasks. That they have.
If they require some piece of software which can offer more sophisticated options, the they should do so and make them there defaults.
Very few of those , so-called, bloatware items consume any memory or CPU time.
*BUT* in those distributions you can uninstall any of that stuff you don't want, and it obeys what you say. It doesn't sit like a spoiled brat and say"no, I don't wanna let you do that". There are also minimal distributions, and minimal install options. Years back, even if you had a system loaded with bloatware (hello Dell, hello HP) you could uninstall those unwanted applications.Wasn't always straightforward, but could be done. Alternatively you could get a base MSWin install CD (or set of floppies at one time) and install a clean base system.You have an insurmountable problem ahead of you, my friend.
Maybe different in other countries, but, here, even if there was such a thing as a "clean" OS, the retailers here would, without doubt, put some of there own junk, usually game demos, on for your pleasure.
There may be such a thing in the world, but I do not know, personally, of any OS , very much including the main Linux distributions, which does not come loaded with extras
