    @Haxk20 good enough for most tasks though if you want to stick to windows. And fairly performant apart from I/O.

    @Gregozor2121 LTSC is a bit better for keeping your system stable than the regular SAC, but Microsoft is still utterly confused about how updates should be picked & scheduled.

    It's not so much about delaying updates until they are tested, it's about properly splitting updates into categories and giving users agency over when and what to install on their system.

    LTSB is meant for hospitals, ATMs and air traffic control, and as such it is slightly more secure and stable, but it's still Microsoft firmly holding the reigns.

    Linux Mint has the right approach in my opinion: Let users view updates by importance and risk -- with a reasonable default filter.

    Level 1-3 updates are selected out of the box and result in a Debian-like "I never use anything my mom didn't approve of" build, while level 4-5 result in an Arch-like "I'm so edgy I use rusty needles for my updates, but I'm a bit broken inside" kind of system.

    Never understood the idea of "there's a bugfix released but I know better than the guys who released the software"

    I've never had a forced windows update that wasn't part of a corporate shutdown (and we give up to 8 hours to delay those) because I leave windows update turned on, if I do a shutdown / reboot and it takes a few extra minutes to shutdown and startup so what?

    Maybe I'm missing something but I don't get the joke.

    @seraphimsystems during last weeks I had forced win10 update that took about two hours to install. I could postpone it twice for couple hours, but ended up with forced reboot and wasted time.

    Another recent windows update broke functionality of "default app" for given file type. I should be lucky, because people lost their data due to that update.

    At home my windows ended unusable for half a day because it decided to install all updates from last year. It was its first chance to do this, because I barely run it.

    If you never experienced such thing, consider yourself lucky.

    @Haxk20 I tried RM / RF --no-preserve and it did not work :(

    @Haxk20 pretty sure it won't work because windows put the Linux subsystem in a runtime broker
    My windows install stopped booting because the bios of my machine got a bug apparently ? Weird stuff.

    @seraphimsystems Not a Windows user here, but any update on my work computer ends up taking 2 hours due to age and other factors. So it often gets down to “when do I feel like babysitting this for 2 hours to make sure it completes the process?”
