Ran windows update... what the hell? It opened Edge after reboot, AUTOMATICALLY signed me in to the browser with my MS account, defaulted to stealing all my Firefox data, then made me opt out of syncronization and personalization.

After all that? You cannot uninstall Edge.
At least you can still log out; for now.

In my opinion, the FSF Foundation should provide a GPL-like license for hardware.
