I have been using only windows 10 ltsc 1809 and defender for past 8 months now,the amount of bloatware they put into this shit is just below Xiaomi (funny since I'm typing this on my redmi note 7).
Even after disabling quite a lot of telemetry settings Windows 10 sends out a ton of stuff. I didn't even know about all of those until I started using piHole.

This is the stats for a single day only.

Xiaomi in my experience is no worse than Samsung going by pihole logs and comparing the blocked queries on my Galaxy S9 and my mom's Note 5 Pro,

OnePlus seems to be very decent though.

You can uninstall almost all of windows bloatware using Ccleaner. I only keep calculator installed. There are some softwares that we can't remove but we can get rid of 95% of it.

The only free antivirus I use is the one which I use in the Windows built in honestly anyway. I would never recommend anyone to install anything which have such antivirus software in them honestly. So let's hope it will fix themself really. They do collect info.
