No escape: Microsoft injects 'Get Windows 10' nagware into biz PCs

Re: Linux, Linux, Linux, Linux,

It took a second to download and a few more seconds to install.

The Linux upgrade process these days is in a universe Microsoft hasn't even thought about visiting.

One should perhaps also mention that with a little forethought, you can snapshot your filesystem prior to applying the updates, and if you do not like the results you can revert to the snapshot in next to no time. This includes in the very unlikely event that it won't reboot - you just do the reversion from a standalone CD instead.

What do Microsoft folks do? How long does it take to "revert"? And do you get your disk back to the exact same state it was in prior to the failed updates?
