Dear windows.
HI! IT'S ME! ETHAN!!

Why do you take TWO FUCKING HOURS!! To install a god damn UPDATE????
Your update system makes NO DARN SENSE.

Sincerely, Ethan.

    Are you using a SSD? If not I'd highly recommend one. HDDs are garbage with modern systems (to the inevitable "uSe ArCh" commenter, yeah sure I'm sure your Linux install can boot up in seconds from a HDD and take like 0.5MB of RAM overall but that isn't relevant here) . My windows updates literally take seconds with a SSD, I barely notice them.

    Just another windows hater here. But i must admit the whole update stuff got WAY better since Windows 10, and its constantly improving!

    So i use windows 10% of the time, and after a few months i spin it up and let the updates install. With an m2 ssd this takes me ~ 10 minutes.

    Way better than updating every half year or so.

    If you are using dual boot this could be an option for you too maybe?

    I still remember a time where Windows updates just worked.
    But they seem to have fired that maintenance guy after rolling out Windows 7 and nobody else seems to know shit about maintaining that system...

    @R3ym4nn really? It still seems to do the same old shit to me. If I put my system to sleep with stuff open for example. Why the fuck does it reboot unattended, closing everything?

    They did remove some minor grievances lately but it's still over complicated, slow and gets in the way. Yes updates are important. No not all updates are more important than actual work.

    @hjk101 I turn the auto stuff off and do it manually, that works pretty good

    Windows takes less than 5 minutes to update ever since I started using an SSD.

    @Trithon
    Just don't. Unless you develop stuff for MacOS or iOS - then you are almost forced to...

    @dontbeevil well yea it "just works" but i don't wanna use macs because of that

    Windows is just a near endless pain for me from everything from acessibility over updates to a lot of other things
    Macs solve not all, but a lot of these issues for me. Plus: BSD based.
    If i could, i would instantly install linux on my machine, but since i can't, mac it is
    How about you don't judge me for my desicion?
