However, the proliferation of non-removeable crapware/shovelware on desktop Windows 10 ("Candy Crush Soda Saga", etc) shows that if Microsoft was against such stuff in the past, they've certainly overcome their moral scruples since then.

Don't know how it is on the tablet, but it is possible to remove those completely. It does require a more technical mind to do it, but even with the hoops you have to jump through to de-crappify MSWin10 it can be done. As shit as MSWin10 is, you're still allowed more control over your OWN devices, while Google believes you should never be allowed to control devices you bought and paid for.
