I agree they're generally crap at updates but there appears to be something going on inside MS at the moment in this area and it looks like another case of one waring department against another. As a company they're swinging in their approach with updates between "take it all, we document nothing, like it or lump it" and "read about this one, take it if you want it". Here's an example of the latter: http://www.infoworld.com/article/3162345/microsoft-windows/microsoft-uses-new-way-to-distribute-windows-10-update-kb-3216755.html.
..so who knows what they're doing with updates and what the future may hold..which to be fair is pretty much par for the course with Microsoft in general.
Personally I'm in the camp of having to suffer windows in my day job and avoiding it like the plague when working on my own stuff at home.
