Microsoft has added a machine learning model to predict when is the right time to restart the device for updates.

Coming with the next major update.

This should be interesting...

    This can’t possibly be real.

    Instead of solving the root problems just throw blockchain and disruptive innovation at it. Sounds about right.

    When your users still keep whining about your os instead of literally clicking thrice, so you bring out the big guns

    @FrodoSwaggins I'm afraid it is. It's much easier to train and use an ML model than to fucking change how the kernel work in an OS without breaking stuff

    @MrCSharp it’s just so obviously the wrong solution... gah

    Can it predict never? Or maybe once in a few months?

    Or: Why ask when we can guess?!

    @MrCSharp if it's that fucking broken, it's time for a rewrite.

    If you break a vase for the tenth time, you don't keep gluing its chips and pieces back together. You buy a new vase.

    Can't they just let the user decide like on linux.

    Hmm, they can set it, to restart it in the worst time. For example a while before you press CTRL+S. Nice idea for virus 😀

    @Root if you break a vase ten times, buying a new one doesn’t remove the problem. That is kind of what Microsoft is doing by using another method of determining the correct time to install the updates.

    I once had a picture in my window that fell down on the floor and broke. I then bought new frame for the picture and put it back in the window. That obviously didn’t fix it, and the same thing happened two time more. Then I took time to understand the root problem, and found out that my curtains pushed the picture down when I had draft through the apartment. I decided to tie up the curtains, which fixed the problem.

    Bottom line: they should take some time and understand the root problem instead of trying to fix it with a new method of doing the same.....

    @not-sure In my example, the vase was Windows itself. But I agree with your point regardless.

    How about never.
