It is got much better since... Nowdays Windows installs/updates software on its own, and does the reboot also... Whenever it fits...
I can't see how 6 minutes of update/install process can annoy Bill Gates... The email shows how disconnect he was from the reality of Microsoft while dreaming in his office... As I see it is still the same today...

Bill should try Windows 10's Start menu.
I have two machines here sitting side-by-side, with the same build of Windows 10. If I bring up the Start menu on one of them and type in "Programs and features", the control panel applet we all know and love (ahem) shows up. On the next machine, I get "Apps & features", "Add or remove programs" (both of which bring up this Metro-fied abomination that is NOT what I asked for) and "Turn Windows features on or off". Yet if I type in "control" (for control panel), Programs and Features is right there.
It's not a matter of having it learn how I use the start menu or some-such BS (which is a flawed approach anyway), as I invoke it just about as frequently on both machines.
