Microsoft pretty much ruined their OS that broke the mold of even numbered releases being terrible with a few bad decisions. This insistence that you have to get all of their updates, and making it hard to make a decision for your computer was one of them. Even the vaunted delay and schedule doesn't work- on the 21st of May, it prompted me. I said delay until the 26th as I've pretty much given up trying to get around it, but was in the middle of some research for a writing project, and couldn't be interrupted, and then had the rest of the week to contend with. I was done with my research for the night, so went to bed. The next morning? My machine had rebooted and the update was installed.
And yes, to forestall the old you can try another OS argument, I've tried other OSes, and they all leave something to be desired- they just have their cons in different places in my experience.
