Re: Stop moaning
"So you're happy if Microsoft fucks me over, as long as it makes life easy for you?"
I imagine that the popular vote from Joe Public would overwhelmingly endorse that view, yes.
What we also need to remember here is that Microsoft supposedly are not releasing any more Windows versions - and that updates will be on-going and incremental. Therefore if lots of people disable them, it might leave Microsoft with a fragmented user base and lots of compatibility issues.
If you are technically competent enough to be managing updates yourself on a consumer version of Windows 10 then it's not exactly much of a challenge to disable the relevant service. Anyone who can't manage that likely shouldn't be disabling them imo.
Yes there is a risk that Microsoft will bork something with an update, but System Recovery is pretty good these days and it's a task of minutes to roll your PC back if you ever needed to.
