Dear truck-fixer bloke,
While we are all aware of your obsession with big, noisy engines and driving fast, the fact you were caught doing over 40 mph in the 30 mph limit zone past the high school is not an injustice, you would have been wrong to swerve into the policeman who caught you speeding and I'd like you to stop sulking about it and shut up about it now, please.
The recent death of your father is not an excuse for feeling aggrieved that your life-threatening misbehaviour was documented. If anything, it should have made you more aware of the potential impact of you ignoring a speed limit that was put there for people's safety.
Oh, Willie McBride, it was all done in vain.

Me: *boots up computer*
Windows 10: "Oh hi there, you look like you're trying to do something! Could you go ahead any maybe not do that for about 15 minutes so I can install updates? Cheers!"
Me: [15 minutes later] "About damn time, let me run this two-hour video capture now."
Windows 10: [an hour and a half later] "LOL JK gotta run more updates. Rebooting now! Haha you lost the last hour and a half of work."

This isn't the first time this has happened.

Which helps someone using Windows 10..... how, exactly?

Please, describe in detail how it helps a Windows 10 user. Use as many small words as you feel necessary.

I want to know, precisely, how something for Windows 7 and 8/.1 used to prevent an unexpected Windows 10 installation assists a Windows 10 user with a problem.

While I'm sure K-R has tried something like this, it at least actually applies to Windows 10

This isn't the first time this has happened.

I'm still baffled nobody at Windows said "Um, guys? Wouldn't it make sense to ask for user permission before rebooting the computer for updates and disintegrating unsaved data they might have?" during the development of Windows 10. Rebooting computers like that should be classified as a felony.

i'm baffled that so many users seem to just accept that. i mean, some buy a new computer with 10 pre-installed and don't know how to downgrade, ok. but others actually "up"grade a perfectly working win7 system!!
