We announced differential sync at the SharePoint Conference in May. We’ve already rolled it out to our OneDrive personal users and plan to roll it out to the rest of our users by end of this year. See this blog post for more details: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-OneDrive-Blog/OneDrive-announcements-SharePoint-Conference-2019/ba-p/616047.

It was off by default when I installed "Windows 10 Education x64 v1709". In any event, most people want SSD's nowadays as the days of clunky slow 5400rpm or 7200rpm drives is dying fast. Yes, you can get 1TB SSD, but schools don't buy 1TB SSD or 5400/7200rpm drives that often as they're oversized and additionally the latter is SLOW. If you do have a 1TB SSD then your paying through the nose for every employees/student. Not viable. Small SSD's are cost effective, provide speed needed and allow for important files to be saved locally with Files On-Demand. If you don't want it you can easily disable it with Group Policy, "Enabled OneDrive Files On-Demand" and setting it to Disabled, but I imagine you'll annoy more users disabling it then as they can't enable it if you turn it off in Group Policy.

Yes, "onedrive.company.com" is far nicer than "company-my.sharepoint.com/". Much more professional looking as well. This is a definite must.
