Well said and I am in full agreement.. It's easier to blame and bash the system or the OS for doing exactly what it's told to do than to take personal accountability for the inexperience that caused said result.. Again agree... My X1 Carbon came with zero bloat! It had a few live tile placeholders to the app store that I removed in like 11 seconds flat... I spent about 15 minutes total getting it all setup to my liking. No bloat, Cortana off (personal preference) and other items I didn't want removed. Not a singe blue screen nor issue since..
