“Removing the software store, along with other bundled apps, from work machines is normally a good idea to prevent users from installing crap, breaking things and calling the help desk, and generally wasting time at their desks.
The Redmond giant quietly posted a support notice warning sysadmins that for Windows 10 build 1511 and later, the ability to remotely disable the Windows Store through Group Policy settings has been revoked.”

Unless you pay for the enterprise edition, you get the annoyance of M$’s salesmen being able to nag your people all day long. Is that what you want? No? Switch to Debian GNU/Linux, the OS that works for you not against you. If you switch to “enterprise”, how long will it be before they start chasing you there? Next month? Next year? What other schemes will their salesmen develop to make you miserable? Come on. You know they’re out to get you and they will as long as you run their OS.
Chuckle. It was bad enough for me when M$ just shipped schlock software that didn’t work for us. Now they actually distribute malware, a trojan to be specific, as an OS. It’s true. M$ is nailing its coffin shut from the inside.
