please don't take this as being a Windows 10 apologist. I'm taking a generalist approach here. Automatic updates were enabled for a valid reason on most consumer OS's, that's a fact, a fact that any user has to deal with if they manage their own system. We could argue the merits or positive/negative qualities of each implementation, some are obviously better than others, or more/less intrusive or disruptive, that's another discussion. But automatic updates ARE a fact on any consumer OS today, something that any user has to deal with.
