Same here Thrash. I've now removed Java, Flash, QuickTime and Silverlight.

The flash player that's built into Chrome I have set to run on demand.

Removing all of these hasn't had any negative impact on my daily browsing experience. I only had one program which still used java which I've now completely removed. Will find a Java free alternative when I get around to it.

Surprised to hear Netflix still uses Silverlight and even more surprised that some content on the Microsoft site still uses Silverlight. Flogging a dead horse there!

They failed to use it with Skype

Brds7t7, I didn't think that was needed since google chrome keeps flash sandboxed. Also, I looked in chrome://plugins/ didn't see an option to run on demand.

It's in the chrome main settings, not the plugins page. Set all plugins to run on demand. Also sets pdf's to not open automatically.
Probably an unnecessary step, but with the amount of flash vulnerabilities popping up lately, I'm taking no chances.

Ok no matter what I select I get the message about windows 10. I stop it during the setup files state. I have rebooted and chosen only one optional file which is a NVIDEA hardware driver. I still comes up with the same message.

Personally I couldn't give a toss about Windows 10 privacy. If Microsoft really wants to spy on someone's pc, they'd find a way.
But some people (me included) just don't want 10 on their pc. Nothing in the OS interests me or makes me want to upgrade. It's annoying when they're trying to nag people into upgrading though.
I have no interest in Cortana/Planners/Voice Searches. I don't even have Google Now Activated on my Android phone.
I have no interest in mobile style apps on a pc either so Windows 10 is pointless for me. This thread isn't just about privacy concerns.
