Something happened to my win7 system. I couldn’t install or update certain programs. Not much disk space left either. I had to delete stuff just to satisfy my pixls habit. I ignored the problem for a year or so but now have to do my taxes, etc. Anyway, I ended up begrudgingly buying a new ssd and installing win10 on it. Don’t ask me why (not FOSS). Trying to set it up is a nightmare. I have already spent hours figuring out what to disable and turn off, and how to do it. Navigating it is like traversing a cyberpunk Hong Kong.
This is where you come in. I prefer a no-nonsense and minimalist setup. If you have any wise words, please share them. Thanks.
