Re: Why use 2/3/4/5/6/x G at all?
All so some Minister, and PM of course, can crow when the spectrum is sold for x number of billions. Ignoring y number of billions wasted to get there.

I seriously doubt that a small team of individuals, the TOR Project, with a small, even several million dollar budget, is going to do very well against a superpower, any of them, with a several billion dollars budget. Keep the expectations here real. Perhaps they could do a better job of addressing this individual's concerns better, although it reads as these are known issues and not at all easy to address. My comparison of difficulty looking closely is same difficulty as SPECTRE-class.
At its most basic, no matter how you bust it up, network effects will recreate the monopolies. What to do to prevent that, that is the question. Eternal vigilence, except when you do that, regulatory capture rears its ugly head. Really, you'd have to shut down the revolving doors, including Congress and the Executive, and good luck with that!
I use O&O's Shutup10 to disable a lot of the thing like telemetry, automatic store installs and a lot of other gripes. It's free and well worth a look. Joined other regular post-install tools, such as my regular application set via Ninite, that prevent me becoming even more insane than I already am.
20H1 got presented last night for my Dell Latitude notepad, it had been locked out since it's a Thunderbolt 3 machine, and once complete promptly stopped recognizing anything plugged into the Type-C/TB3 ports. Thinking whether waiting it out to make use of WSL-2 or reverting to 1909. Decisions, decisions.
I'm still waiting for an Outlook replacement that works similar to Outlook, probably better would be nice, and follows its damn manual. The other side, Exchange, is another issue, just not mine. I haven't used Excel in ages, but understand that desire.
Majority do not, if you include all small boats, the world over as this ex-sailor has seen first-hand. Over the transom steering, motorized or no, is extremely common. Pretty interesting to see in practice how it changes some of the dynamics of steerage.
(And far more interesting than stale pro-/anti-Brexit arguments. Sorry, not sorry.)
Remember their lord's motto: "Move fast and break things." My code always made use of contracts and validation to ensure compliance even in conditions where all the code was personally written. While it never actually happened, I did not trust myself let alone the rest of the universe. Then again, people would be harmed or killed if I screwed up.
