For those of you who complain about the auto update "feature"

    You’re not owning your windows computer. You’re renting it. Microsoft is the owner.

    Yeah, but it would be nice if they built it in a way where it didn't take a half hour of downtime to update. Seems like a solvable problem.

    Windows protects you in an online world by taking down a server in use by 350+ people because they decided you really needed the update.

    Windows protects you in a online world when your other server that has no internet connection bugs you almost daily because it hasn't been able to force any updates on you.

    They should simply include a feature that can still protect you in an online world: give users the power of choice on their own machine.

    @uyouthe yep, it's actually really brilliant a variable based os opposed to macs os version control that burns bridges on every update to make you pay more

    @ddit if you're not paying attention to a server and it forces an update...I think thats asking for more than an unexpected update.
