I run an Antivirus on Atlas, specifically Webroot SecureAnywhere v184.108.40.206. Which functions as both AV and AM, so saying Atlas "targets" AV is false and wouldn't make any sense. Targeting AV and Attacking AV are different things, neither which Atlas does, Atlas is the purest of W10, stripped, naked. Also, it's open source so…you could oh, I don't know…inspect everything yourself or pay someone to look into and prove you wrong. Also, on the subject of being OPEN SOURCE, Github would have tons of complaints and more than likely would have removed the Atlas project off their site if it were malware or had an malicious intent. SECONDLY, Microsoft and whatever team(s) they have ALSO, can access Atlas via Github as it's OPEN SOURCE and can dissect the OS and if they did that AND found malicious intent within the OS, I don't think Atlas would still be around, on a public domain unless their DMCA was ignored by the Atlas team.
So, in short, you don't know what you're talking about, you don't know how to…create a bootable drive for some reason even though you can use Windows Media Creation, Rufus, BelenaETCHER and many more…so… slow clap
Thanks for trying, better luck next time.
Sincerely yours, Knoxtane
