It's Now One Less

I had a Win10 workstation generating videos for a time sensitive project due the next day. I had previously disabled the Windows Update service so it would run unimpeded.

Came back the next morning to find WU had turned itself on, installed updates and rebooted. That cost me money and was the last straw. I'm now using a Linux based OS with Open Source video encoder. It's faster to process video, I can uninstall what I don't want and I choose when to update it.

In the immortal words of Father Jack, Microsoft can feck off.
