Re: Oh but you can remove bloatware to a certain degree ...

Yes I think you are correct in that it removes the package for the current user.

If you consider that Bloatware is basically three parts: 1) consumption of storage space; 2) crapware/security vulnerabilities running in the background; 3) cluttering up the UI then I believe this solves the last two but not the first.

I consider it a small price to pay for not having to root and still receive updates.
