how about just using it as is? i know, paranoya and such, but the telemetry data actually leads to improvements, especially if you're running insider builds. they're very responsive, and fix a lot of quirks rather quickly.
i see really no point in the blocking of os improvements. same as disabling updates n stuff. it's just stupid. making your own life worse for nothing. you want windows to be as good as possible? let them do their job.
