I never appreciate how painless and effective operating system updates are in Linux (Mint) until I have to install Windows 10 updates. Windows could learn a lot from Linux about good user experience here.


Windows is especially painful as the non-default option at boot. All those forced reboots during updates means you have to vigilantly babysit the updater to catch the boot screen at just the right time to pick the Windows boot, or your entire update process will stall.

4 reboots and counting now... over an hour of waiting, and the computer is completely unusable while updating too.
