Yes, Me too.
sorry Glen. You are correct and as often is the case MS changes
things and takes away your choices... in that you can no longer
get the .ISO directly from the ms site if you are running windows.
You can use developer tools to spoof a non windows browser and
they will show up. or use a non windows machine or a 3rd party
download site or use Rufus to get it.
I imagine this is to reduce tech support costs...

You are correct on this, too, but I personally use the MCT because
it can (and often does) build an ISO file that is more recent as
far as the patches that have been applied than the static ones you
can download. It also doesn't really take any additional time of
significance and is, for many, quite a bit more user friendly.
But no matter what, you can download the Windows 10 ISO under
Windows (any Windows). Even Rufus now has a feature allowing the
end user to download the ISO for any version of Windows 10,
including ancient ones.
