    Like how to avoid qa even more.

    Just release them, scrape forums for data, in case press the emergency button.
    Then QA + Investigate.

    I just want a stable system - letting bigger updates settle before updating.

    qft.



    What happens if windows installs an update that bricks user's PCs / installation? How will it "uninstall" itself if it kills windows itself, the network connections etc.
    And it's not like we haven't seen this happening in the past 12 months.

    I bet the biggest issue of many PC users in the past 36 months was indeed m$, malware's a tiny problem compared to a essentially bugged OS

    Really the only thing I want is the f8 boot menu to be enabled by default, or at least that if you switch to the legacy boot menu , that it doesn't revert it every time there is a major update. The only thing more annoying than a startup error, is boot cycling until windows decides its time to try repairs, just to access safe mode, or use a restore point.

    While you are generally right, I use LTSB / LTSC, so what plagues most people, quaterly feature updates, does not bug me at all since I don't get those.
    It's still a PITA that you have to take care of so many things before 10 starts to behave like 7 did... and I haven't even fully managed to do that :D

    I am perfectly fine with this feature. I never install update before I read the reports here in Guru3d.

    Btw, I can offer related feature for Windows - MS posts reports from Guru3d along with the update info.

    To me it looks more like this: :D
    Code:
    try {
      updateOS();
    } catch(e) {
      // $hit, how we ended up here?!
      rollback();
      rollback();
      rollback();
      rollback();
      rollback(); // !!!
      // DO NOT PANIC !!!
      rollback();
    
      // Say something smart to assure end-user everything is OK.
      print(":)")
    }

    You can configure your network connection (both wired and wireless) as a metered one which will stop forced updates.

    That code will not work because only one rollback will be called in case it will fail.

    The problem is getting a LTSB license.
    Where did you get that?
