Does Pi-hole Block 100% Windows 10 Telemetry? : pihole
I use the blocklists from crazy-max's WindowsSpyBlocker (link). You can find the lists under /data/hosts and then your OS. If you just want to block "spying" domains, just use the spy.txt list -- that's what I do, for all the versions in the repository (7, 8.1, and 10).

Some domains you might want to whitelist:

Logging in to Microsoft services:
* login.live.com

Maps app/location services (find my device, auto night light):
* dev.virtualearth.net
* ecn.dev.virtualearth.net
* geo-prod.do.dsp.mp.microsoft.com
* t0.ssl.ak.dynamic.tiles.virtualearth.net
* t0.ssl.ak.tiles.virtualearth.net

Office:
* c.s-microsoft.com
* nexus.officeapps.live.com
* nexusrules.officeapps.live.com
* i.s-microsoft.com
* officeclient.microsoft.com
* outlook.office365.com
* products.office.com

Xbox (also used by Microsoft Store games like Minecraft):
* attestation.xboxlive.com
* cert.mgt.xboxlive.com
* def-vef.xboxlive.com
* device.auth.xboxlive.com
* eds.xboxlive.com
* help.ui.xboxlive.com
* licensing.xboxlive.com
* notify.xboxlive.com
* title.auth.xboxlive.com
* title.mgt.xboxlive.com
* www.xboxlive.com
* xbox.ipv6.microsoft.com
* xboxexperiencesprod.experimentation.xboxlive.com
* xflight.xboxlive.com
* xkms.xbolive.com
* xsts.auth.xboxlive.com

Windows Updates/Microsoft Store (app updates):
* ctldl.windowsupdate.com
* displaycatalog.mp.microsoft.com
* dl.delivery.mp.microsoft.com
* sls.update.microsoft.com

Network connectivity:
* msftncsi.com
* dns.msftncsi.com
* ipv6.msftncsi.com
* www.msftncsi.com

Miscellaneous:
* answers.microsoft.com (not directly used by Windows but helpful if searching for Windows help online)
* support.microsoft.com (see answers.microsoft.com)
* settings-win.data.microsoft.com (sync Windows settings)
* g.live.com (backup Bitlocker key to Microsoft account)

I should make a list on Github.

Edit: moved g.live.com because I had it under the wrong category.

Windows Isn’t a Service; It’s an Operating System
“Windows as a Service” is failing. It’s obvious: Windows is not a service, and never was. It’s a desktop operating system, and it doesn’t need updates every six months. Even iOS and Android only get significant updates once per year.

Web Development and Advanced Techniques with Linux on Windows (WSL) - Scott Hanselman
I've posted several times on the Windows Subsystem for Linux that allows you to run Linux on Windows 10 without a VM. Check out my YouTube on Editing code and files on Windows Subsystem for Linux on Windows 10. There's just one rule. You can mess with Windows files from Linux but you can't mess with Linux files from Windows. Otherwise, go crazy and enjoy.

Microsoft lobs Windows 10, Server October 2018 update at world, minus its file-nuking 'feature', after actually doing some testing • The Register
Is the Windows October 2018 update here again? Did it ever exist previously? Are we all in a feverish dream where the latest version, build 1809, is stable and fit for purpose, and Patch Tuesday was totally uneventful? Our finger hovers over the "no" button, but we live in hope of someone one day fitted a "yes" key.

Microsoft Tells Windows 10 BitLocker Users: Turn It Off And On Again - Forbes, Nov 2018
As users of Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise have access to, and will likely use, the full-disk encryption BitLocker feature, Microsoft has acted quickly. It has issued a security advisory for configuring BitLocker to enforce software encryption, which will not be the default as BitLocker exclusively uses hardware encryption if the drive indicates supports for it. The advisory states "On Windows computers with self-encrypting drives, BitLocker Drive Encryption manages encryption and will use hardware encryption by default. Administrators who want to force software encryption on computers with self-encrypting drives can accomplish this by deploying a Group Policy to override the default behavior."
