Those apps aren't actually installed. They're just links to install in your start menu and you can most definitely remove them. It's only when you actually click on them that they are installed on your device. You can even remove them using group policy so that the user never even sees them! I'd rather they were not there at all but it's something completely different than what is happening with Android devices
