I don't even think the Pro-version is safe from this.
Sanity begins probably at the Enterprise-version.
I wonder how the world reacts to this.
One backlash more.
I personally want this to happen because it will keep everyone's computer safer.
No, it will make computers less safer. Was Windows 8 successful at heralding the ago of metro apps on the PC? No, it was successful to create a viable business for start menu replacements.
Everyone knows how to make Windows Update go automatically, and most chose this setting freely. But there are lots of situations when manual is better, at least for a while. If this thing starts to get uncontrollable, and forces reboots, update loops (waiting for your laptop doing the 50-updates dance just when you wanted to go is always fun) without the ability to turn off, and un-deselectable updates (maybe even uninstallable ones) to boot, then the * will hit the fan fast!
WU-blockers for Windows 10 will be what start menu replacers were for W8. The interwebs will be full of advices on how to stop the Windows Update service entirely.
And please stop kidding ourselves to think these changes were about forcing security. That's a BS excuse. There was no problem with the old regime. The security track record and spread of updates is pretty solid since XP SP2.
It's all about forcing further upgrades, not updates. It's about making these forced upgrades un-avoidable and about brute-forcing GUI- and other changes when it suits MS next time. They don't want to swallow another W8. Next time they cook up something like metro, staying on the older system should not be an option according to MS. That message is clear.
