My Windows 10 setup instructions

This is the check-list I go through whenever I install a new machine for personal use.

This article is WORK IN PROGRESS

Intro

I use Windows as my main computer, installed on a Lenovo T450s, now supersded by the T480s, which combines quite good power while still being lightweight, and gives 3 years on-site warranty. Even if I find Windows 10 too unstable nowadays (too many updates, breaking features too often), I find that the LTSB (Long Term Servicing Branch) alternative does not get enough driver support for use on laptops. For this reason I try to use an Enterprise version instead, and strip it down as much as I can.
