I wonder what is the motivation to remove bloatware? You can let it be, like junk in your garage or basement. Or you can remove it, like the trash you leave at the curb every week. But unlike true junk, it's practically invisible. So it's not really

Get a supplemental rider on your homeowner's insurance (or renter's insurance). It's much cheaper than a UPS, and much more effective.

There's quite a bit of past discussion on here about the P255. Find it with the search (top left). It's seen as a marginal improvement over the P155 which was well regarded in its price range. So solid but not outstanding would be my summary.

There is dynamic current music happening, in all genres and new explorations. And there are upcoming excellent piano technicians and tuners, some of them prefer to stay in the background, still learning their craft.
