If you happen to use Windows 10 every day, at work or on your day-to-day PC, you are likely to be tired of dealing with some of its specifics. Well, this is exactly why there are some tools like Ninjutsu OS, a new software with the ability to modify the Microsoft operating system with several tweaks, mods, and extra features.
However, the popular tool has already taken a DMCA complaint on top, coming directly from Microsoft. After all, according to the legal notice, customizing, modifying, or removing Windows 10 features is a violation of the software license! Even if these changes improve the OS in some areas like privacy.
Removing ‘boring’ features from Windows 10 is illegal!
Therefore, in case you don’t know, Windows has always had modified versions on the Internet, as well as applications that only serve to change some of its specificities, to better fit users’ daily lives. That said, the new Ninjutsu OS aims to take these mods to a whole new level, something Microsoft didn’t like very much.
After all, having been released on May 7, Ninjutsu OS claims to be able to turn Windows 10 into a much lighter, faster, more efficient, secure, and less boring operating system! Adding about 800 tools designed with privacy in mind, applications such as qBitTorrent and Tor Browser, all at the same time as removing several basic features of the OS that are mostly considered useless by users.

However, the project’s ‘home’ on Github has now been closed, due to the fact that Ninjutsu OS goes against Microsoft’s copyright. All due to violations in these fields:
- Windows 10 customization
- Privacy protection
- Disabling features
- Component removal
- Removal/disabling of various programs and/or services
You are probably now thinking that Ninjutsu OS is a pirated version of Windows 10 that is being shared on the Internet. However, this line of thought does not correspond to the truth, since a valid license is required for everything to work 100%.
That is, Microsoft does not lose any money with the popularity of the tool. In fact, according to the team, Microsoft’s base code has not been modified, nor does the project serve to sell something that is not its own.
