    My little experiment is done.

    Windows 10 Enterprise Insider Preview is acting like Windows 10 Pro, with the same behavior on default settings but a little/slightly different.

    IS *(censured F word)* INSTALLING SOFTWARE WITHOUT ASKING ANYTHING OR GIVING ANY NOTIFICATION TO THE USER.

    Windows 10 PRO:
    -Fresh install, connected to the internet, activated (genuine/legal digital license)
    IT INSTALLED a bunch of JUNK DEBRIS into my computer like:

    Games: - Crash sandy gaga, Mine-craft, Facebook app and a lot of other crap which I do not use or needed.

    Windows 10 Enterprise Insider Preview:
    -Fresh install, connected to the internet, NOT activated
    IT INSTALLED a bunch of JUNK DEBRIS into my computer like:

    Tools: Adobe Photoshop Express, Code Writer.

    ______________________________________________


    Enterprise:
    It is nice that, Photoshop Express and Code Writer is installed into the machine but I like Atom better to write code.
    Way better than Photoshop Express is Pixlr website. Beside this Autodesk as a company seems to be pretty solid at this moment.
    Pro:
    I f***ing hate Crash Sandy Gaga and games like that, I don't play Mincraft, and Facebook as a corporation - not as a service it really sucks.

    Now, I wonder why nobody is writing about this behavior and why nobody is filling a complain to them.

    IT IS NOT NORMAL for a PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTION MACHINE to automatically install bunch of software in the background without asking the user or the administrator of that machine. A production machine is supposed to be STABLE.

    We can assume that a normal "home" developer/code writer will use Win Pro to develop programs and yet his machine is stuffed with a bunch of crappy games.
    We can assume that a normal "corporation" developer/code writer will use Win Enterprise to develop programs and yet his machine is stuffed with a bunch of crappy tools.

    Installing crap-ware and boating the machine with it, is being done automatically by Microsoft in background, without confirmation or notification. And this is happening by default

    Why is nobody screaming at Microsoft for this default behavior?... Or at least on other forums like this one or Reddit, windows 10 forums etc?...

    Just a word to the wise friend but be mindful of posting the F bomb or abbreviations of it, otherwise admin/mods will be jumping on you! :nono3:

    Thank you guys for cheering me up! It's really apreciatted.

    Accept my appoligize for the *F word, I was psyhological ventilating, not intending to be rude/harm/offend a particular person. It was born in the text post because of fustratins of seing an unhealthy behavior in the Operating System and not seing people to scream louder about this - google search gives me nothing.

    This forum is awsome, and some people from here really rocks.
    Please keep up the good work and make a really good reliable backup copy of this forum in various different locations. Don't be lazy, make a backup of that backup. Cheers!

    @doctortonic: The people at MDL have made tremendous strides in testing, tuning and tweaking Windows 10.
    To get up to speed, you have to look through the forum.

    Start with lobo11's thread. That'll give you directions in which to go.

    Best of luck.

    Yeah, we know the feeling, damn it. You can always use an alternative "physical" ventilating via, e.gr., Windows 10 is installing "POOP" then you can let it go easily and not restricted by forums' rules. :D

    Last time I tested, W10 wouldn't install those apps if I removed the pending tiles in Start before connecting to LAN, has that changed? Wouldn't surprise me..

    Read the thread i posted the link for, that is the enterprise he is talking about, 14393.

    Because it's from the techbench unlocked downloads (enterprise has insider preview in the name), he calls it insider preview.

    @doctronic - You might consider removing "Insider Preview" from the OP cos' it's liable to mislead ppl, take note of Enthousiast post above. ^
