I'm hoping and working for a Clean Reinstall being the default Reset for Windows 10, since it already uses the install.wim of the OS and the other crap is shoveled in afterward. If this isn't what they come up with for Windows 10, then we'll have another cause to draw more millions to the Forums to get the best possible install. We won't know for sure until we see the first factory install of Windows 10.
Sounds brilliant. Really hoping that becomes a feature. I as a tech geek would probably still advocate for a fully clean install of my own doing but this would be much easier to implement on client systems and wouldn't have to root around for drivers etc as they would presumably be included in the reset image, but without the bloat of course.
