How hard should I be pushing to get our people to chuck out the Win'10 OS and install Linux directly on the machine? Or to use some earlier version of Windows, such as 7 or 8 or 8.1? We've got site licenses for at least some of those.
Originally, Win'10 had a host of "features" that many people considered utterly unacceptable. Freely sharing network passwords with everyone in one's Outlook contact list; automatic and irrevocable installation of OS upgrades; snooping on user activity and uploading the results to μsoft. Push advertising. More. Some of these have been pulled back, some haven't, but I'm under the impression that I still don't want a Win'10 machine on my home network if I can help it. Have I got that right?
I suppose that one option would be to make the machine dual-bootable, and simply never boot up the Win'10 side.
