Bloatware Banished: Windows 10 Eliminates the Need to Ever Reinstall Windows on New PCs

Geeks often immediately reinstall Windows on their new PCs to get a completely clean system. Thanks to a change in Windows 10, you can get a fresh copy of Windows on any PC without downloading an ISO file and reinstalling Windows.
Microsoft is changing the way Refresh and Reset works in Windows 10. Computer manufacturers won’t be able to pollute the recovery image with their own software and modifications. Manufacturer-provided software is stored separately.

Like the article says, what if you want to retain a particular piece of that "bloatware" it currently doesn't give that option.
It also retains all Windows updates so that you don't have to download all over again after a refresh, but if an update is the issue, it will remain for the average user.

Bloatware, so Candy Crush whatever, that's allegedly going to be installed by default, doesn't come under that category?

Will the inclusion of Candy Crush also spell the end of Microsoft's Signature Series hardware?

Signature Edition Computers – Microsoft Store


Forget about any pre-installed junk that slows down your PC.

What satrow said. So basically, all the "bloatware" will be banished, except the one from Microsoft? And personally, I didn't mind some manufacturer OEM software, like the software they use to push critical updates for their products, control your hotkeys, etc. because without these, you have to either find a third-party program to do the job, or find a way to do it manually.

HP Support Assistant is an example. It will display all the information on the product: model numer, serial number, serie, etc. while sometimes these aren't displayed anywhere else (the full product number). And it's easier to tell the user to check in that program for the product, rather than making him flip his laptop or computer, check under the battery, etc. But I agree that most OEM software is useless. Even more when they bundle popular program that becomes quickly outdated and vulnerable like Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Reader, etc.
