    Some of this is very troubling.

    if you’ve chosen to have updates installed automatically on your device."


    Haz choice?

    Any choice is defined by the SKU and Branch, W10 home users don't get any choice as they're stuck in the Consumer Branch. W10 Pro and above users can opt to defer the Anniversary Update, switching them to the Business Branch, the AU will then be blocked until December 2016.

    Unless MS move the goalposts again.

    Some. On Win10 Pro (not sure about home), you can mark updates to defer upgrades and the Anniversary Update is really an Upgrade. Even Microsoft can't keep their own terms straight - no wonder others are confused.

    Supposedly, Updates are security and other semi-technical stuff. Upgrades are new/changed features; which this definitely is.

    On my Win10 machine, I have upgrades deferred so this upgrade didn't show up as available. For some reason that now escapes me, I decided that there didn't seem to be a reason to not go ahead and upgrade. After running an image to an external drive, I flipped the switch to allow upgrades. Rather than notifying me there was something, Windows immediately started the download and upgrade (so much for doing things consistently).

    After running into issues (stated elsewhere), I restored my old image and will wait until the dust clears and I have a better idea how many little gotcha's have been included with the advertised features.

    I'm getting kind of tired of update roulette. I'm thinking that someone at Microsoft must have excessively large feet, because they keep shooting themselves in the foot. When will they get it through their heads that long time technical users don't like being force fed and they they are slowly but surely forcing people into looking at options. I now use an iPad for almost everything that I don't have to have a Windows computer for. And if I ever really retire, I will likely kiss Windows goodby forever.

    Updates are fun. I am a technical user, and I live for updates.

    Just found out the new update has removed my Media Center and WMM 6.0 version.

    No big deal. I have already reinstalled media center. I'll do the WMM 6.0 later.

    I prefer the older WMM version.
