Sometimes I feel like people here bitch about Windows and Microsoft when half of their issues aren't even Windows/Microsoft's fault. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ

There's no way to prove it, but it's basically someone who has their mind made up that Windows is shit, therefore it points out every single thing, especially the trivial shit, that's wrong.

(I'm the same way with iOS/MacOS lol)

    I use both windows and Linux, if I wanna do comfy office paperwork style stuff, play videogames or develop .NET I go for Windows if not I go for linux it's just better at running on potato hardware, updates when I want it too (and doesn't take hours), package management is easy and I like using the terminal instead of clicking and dragging everywhere.

    Boils down to preference and occupation.

    Personally I don't complain much about OS and tools anymore....

    But...
    However....
    Although....

    Having the computer force update whenever it wants to is the work of the Dalai Lama of idiots!!! The only way to turn those off is through group policy, regedit AND disabling the update notification rights to execute. No ordinary user will do that.

    I think that part is unforgivable. Especially since there are people using Windows for work.

    BTW -> I use Linux, Windows and macos

    @Rick-C137 I've used Windows on the daily for the last 6 or 7 years and I've never once had a forced update.

    I don't know what y'all do to cause that shit, but i personally think it's a myth ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

    @Stuxnet Windows 10.

    I'm talking about their new mechanism that auto reboots to update when the PC is idle (in it's own opinion that is). That also has a time limit if I remember correctly so it will restart within 1 day I think.

    So if you want to leave it running through the night (for a server or any reason) you can't without doing what I wrote above.

    Another issue although not with Windows themselves are some driver incompatibilities that cause issues on some updates which is a reason to defer updates till the weekend for example.

    P.S. I know they let you defer updates but there are limits for "security" updates which will be applied anyway.

    @Rick-C137 haven't tried that option yet. But I don't tent to leave my Win10 machine on if I'm not using it anyway...
    But yeah, agree that it can be a pain if you want it "idle" (server idle, I mean) and the bugger decides to restart

    @Rick-C137 I understand people’s issues with forced updates.

    Though I think it’s Microsoft’s way of making sure they don’t have any security holes in the majority of computers in the wild. Likely wanting to remedy their terrible security history from older Windows versions.

    @SauceBoss

    People want security.
    Windows enforces security.
    People bitch about enforcement.

    You can't please everyone, so at this point, just do what protects your best interest

    @Stuxnet Yeah agreed. I enjoy getting updates personally.

    I always see tons of rants on Windows updates. I feel like I’m the only one who turns on my computer every day and clicks the “Check for updates” button and waits patiently lol
