Don't get me started on Windows 10 as a productivity workstation. ;-)

I'm fine with having maps *available*. I'm *not* fine with having it
installed by default and having to remove it or de-configure it. For
that matter I feel the same way about Weather - I just haven't gone to
the trouble of configuring it out / removing it. Heck, it's only been
since midway of the F21 cycle that I haven't removed Boxes after an
install. ;-)
