"However, the proliferation of non-removeable crapware/shovelware on desktop Windows 10..."
I have it in good authority that most of that crap (both links to the installers and pre installed programs) was put there by the PC manufacturers in exchange for some pocket change from

This is Hell. Acts that would have sent a person in for a decade or two cause companies to pay small fines that don't even cover the profit the company obtained from installing malware in their own clients devices, FFS!.
