If I literally could’ve nuked Microsoft when my work Windows 10 machine at a previous job ran forced updates 5 minutes before a very important, millions-of-dollars-in-the-balance meeting, I would’ve. Since it was my work machine, I was not permitted to change its settings (though I easily could’ve despite all the “security” software on it).
God, so true. I don’t have meetings where money is at stake but I often have a very tight schedule at work. If I have 15 minutes between classes to rub back to the office, do what I need on my computer, and run to the next class, it’s seriously aggravating to have a forced update start happening.
I don’t feel hatred a lot but I did hate the creators of the forced updates. The disregard for people’s work process was deeply obnoxious. And I don’t have admin privileges on my work computer, so I can change nothing. It’s all about a ridiculous exhibition of power: I’ll screw you because I can.
I’m happy the forced updates are going away.
