Haxk2040412176dBullshit. Its not proper Linux. Its just subsystem
Gregozor21214960176dWin 10 LTSC 2019
Thank me later.
bittersweet35067176d@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.
seraphimsystems4374175dNever 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.
mt3o1826175d@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.
