Whose Computer Is It?

A recent post in USENET’s alt.comp.os.windows-10, entitled “Re: Article on Win10 adoption”, had this paragraph: “I had a 10 minute deadline to email an important document. Having switched on the laptop which should have been ready to use in about a minute, Windows decided it was a good time to start installing the latest large update. Twenty minutes later it was ready for use but useless to meet my deadline. It was not a life or death situation but it has cost me a few extra days in time before I get a decision from the [recipient].”

I have had cases of Windows software deciding it knew better than I did. It once miscorrected my E-mail address on my resume. It was good that I noticed a flash at the top of the screen.

So whose computer is it?
