My biggest hurdle:
Having to install Windows because some old application only runs on Windows.
No, i do not want to sign in.
I AM SURE

Installer: How about signing in?

Edit: Now it asks me about privacy options. As if i even had a choice..

    Ok, just realised that tons of bloatware is shipped with Windows (Autodesk, "Keeper",...) but there is no Solitaire anymore..
    Who even uses this

    Actually, stock Windows has little to none bloatware. Seems like you either have an OEM or a pirated version which could be modified. Solitaire is available on the store.

    I downloaded the Stock USB ISO from Microsofts Website, and I just found this: https://reddit.com/r/Windows10/...

    Edit: Looks like since the anniversary update, there is something called "Content Delivery Manager", which silently diwnloads bloatware.

    There are apps preinstalled, but i don't know how much they can called bloatware, as they are uwp they don't slow down the pc (no autostart and backround processes) and they can be totally clean uninstalled (no registry, random files ecc...). Funny that if mac os add apps it's cool, if windows does it's not, people complained that there was no pdf reader by default (for example) now people complain that there is no more solitaire (so this was fine) LOL

    You can skip to sign in/create account, just as everyone does, it's the smaller option :)

    You can turn off the invasive tracking options with check boxes I think?

    Let me rephrase that: you can uncheck some things related to privacy in the hopes that they actually do something instead of just having a 'checked' value turned on or off in a database 😅

    The Solitaire thing was a joke, and I found the Option to create an offline Account, it just annoyed me that they ask over and over again.

    And I don't like the preinstalled apps from Apple either, but if you like it, i haveno Problem with that and I don't want to argue about operating Systems. (I am using Arch Linux on which i only installed what i wanted to install)

    @pfish as long is not a bloatware (like the one installed by OEMs that slow down and mess up your pc), I don't care, I don't pay attention :)

    And you can also only "disable" few things from what they read according to their privacy policy.
