I still can't understand why things like the Xbox and Mixed Reality apps are included in the OS by default. Why not just put it in the Windows store and allow people to install it if they wish.
I can't argue with that. I'll never touch an Xbox (app or otherwise) or any of the Gaming stuff that comes with Windows 10.
Of course, there are all sorts of other things that fit that bill, too. I don't use multiple desktops, for instance, nor most of the Accessibility features, though I need to teach myself Narrator at some point.
But, as I just said on one of the blindness and low-vision technology groups to someone saying that they hate so much about Windows 10:
"No matter what features are added or removed, or what defaults are chosen, in a system like Windows that's used by untold millions around the world there will be those that love or hate each and every one of them.
As I said before, operating systems aren't made for *you*, where that you is any given individual or organization. Many conflicting needs and wants must be considered and there will always be a tension between who gets what and who's happy and who's not."
Operating systems are the Swiss Army Knives of software and are used as marketing tools for applications by their respective makers on a routine basis. 'Twas ever thus.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
