    I now have a Win 10 tablet, and BEFORE setting it up with accounts and the like I want to be protected from Microsoft. Will I be needing / deleting the same updates as a desktop computer running Win 10 to poprtect me from telemetry and other "evil" inventions?
    I cannot find any threads here concerning that problem...

    Thank You

    It's the exact same windows that runs on it as on desktops. You say accounts, how much ram does the tablet have, because it's resource hogging to setup multiple accounts on any system.

    Hello, someone is alive....
    I am worried about these these, basically what I want to know: do I, can I, should I update to the latest version of Win10?
    And how do I get rid off all the Win10 parts that I want to get rid off, like telemetry?

    (This is my first contact with Win10, so you can assume I know nothing)

    Do I basically follow this thread?

    You'd have to make your own LTSB version by conversion.

    Or use one of the 'sources' directly (English -N and non N-, 32 and 64 bit versions to be source)

    I personally recommend TGK a tiny KMS tool found here: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/tool-ghost-kms-tgk.67038/
    You probably have to put this exe onto your exclusion list of your AV. You don't need a task, you can extend the period manually by executing it on an USB memory stick. (Every half year)

    About w7....dunno how your tablet is supported by native OS drivers. Standards are no problem, I suppose, but 'special' hardware might be...and tablets are special compared to PC hardware.

    Win7might not be really supported as tablets are touchscreen, and only manias like myself would prefer a mouse... I will check around.
    I had a look around at the "improvements" from Win7 to Win10, but so far found only ยด"changes" no "improvements". Just the streaming speed, I will have to check myself, other than that, I will use Android and root it. That works best for my needs.

    With Windows one never knows, so I better ask:
    If I boot Android on a double boot tablet, do I actually "know" that Win10 telemetry is inactive?

    Yes. You can be sure.
    To get an OS in action you have to boot it. This applies to any function of it. It is practically not available when not booted just like a single boot.

    The only difference is that you might access its filesystem from the other OS if compatible. I dual boot w7 with Linux Mint. From Mint I can access the w7 system partition, because it has NTFS support. Android hasn't, though. It's invisible to Android.

    From the perspective of a booted OS the other, second one is just like stored data if accessible or an unknown partition.

    Would you mind having a look at another question on dual boot?
