Because new threats to browsers, OS and also devices are so frequent and damaging, it is good that security updates are installed without consent. If you do not do those security updates, you may become the one who passes bad stuff to others without knowing it.
Well Pekka, I just don't agree; if getting security updates when they first come out was such a good idea, enterprise users would be doing it. But they don't want to see their machines crippled by BSODs and rolling restarts, so MS allows them to wait while all the non-Pro users work out the bugs for them. That's totally unethical.
When the PC is a work machine get the Pro version. Windows 10 Pro lets you postpone security updates up to 30 days without any hacks, feature updates (like the last big one) can be postponed up to a year. There is also a "pause updates" button which works for 35 days. I run 10 pro and like it a lot.
I should pay for an upgrade to Pro just so that I can run my machine the way I choose to? Again, I don't agree.
There is another, more personal factor: I've had Win10 since it first came out, on a second pc. And even with Classic Shell, it's just... ugly. I can't stand to look at it. It's one of those personal things, like whether or not text is too small.
You know this an argument that can't be won by either side.
