Don't worry, MS is grabbing you by the balls even with that program.
MS might have you by the balls, but my balls or MS free. Here's an older article that answered my own question about Win10 being free from Digital Trends
A. Windows 10 is a Massive ad for Windows Store.
I don't use the Windows Store, and I have a program that blocks all ads
for now from Microsoft. Even if MS would create a workaround there's a way to manually
go in and block ads.
B. Contra funnels users to Bing
I don't use Bing or Contra.
C. OneDrive (MS Cloud Service) is free until it's used up
With all of my external hard-drives, flash drives, and micros I have damn near 9 terabytes. Free space is NOT an issue.
D. Microsoft Office might be included but it's not free
My personal copy of MS Office 2014 still runs fine, I even get the occasional updates.
As a side note, Windows 10 doesn't support Windows Essentials anymore, Movie maker does still work assuming any of you use it. Also with Start10
gets rid of those crappy charms MS introduced in Win8, from those screen shots I posted in my other comment you can see it looks like I'm running windows 7. Not too shabby
I highly recommend clicking on the links provided if you use Win 10, you might thank me.
