    Yup, had to rename Cortana and reinstall the old Windows games but at least they didn't reinstall all their bloatware, at least that's a plus.

    Oh and the update takes about an hour but I didn't really time it exactly.

    Two of the good things Microsoft has done with this update is one, if you have uninstalled their original bloatware the update will not reinstall it, they're respecting our choices and two, they've supposedly given us more control over data the they collect. The only thing is you have to log in to your Microsoft account and go to your privacy settings, supposedly you can delete anything they have collected.
    As for setting your computer to "metered connections" to block updates Microsoft will now send critical updates over metered connections but nothing else.
    They've also supposedly improved Windows Defender, I'll wait for the independent labs to verify that claim.
    As for the rest;
    What’s New in Windows 10’s Creators Update

    This update will be rolled out over the next three months.

    I need an OS that will not be changed indiscriminately through forced updates. The customizations that I make to serve my needs could be useless as soon as another freaking "update" arrives. Then I would have to wait for the developers to adapt the tools.

    :iagree:, Upgraded about a year ago... It was OK until about 3 months later when an Update stalled and when I went to Re-install it, it Crashed the PC... A Pop-up said it was Invalid and everything I had was blocked... Couldn't even do a System Restore... Only thing that I could Save was all the Stuff that I Attached to email Drafts that I left in My email Account... Back to Win Home Premium and recently lost MSE, a Pop-up opened after another Up-date about 2 weeks ago saying that MSE couldn't Run on this PC and it now has Win Defender...! Was Happy with Win 98 SE...! :gs:
