98% of so called "updates" have no bearing on what people do with their computers. Why cant microsoft call a spade a spade?
doing sh*t just because we fell like it, and maybe, just maybe if you're lucky we may actually fix some other sh*t we got wrong.

You have to use the Local Group Policy Editor, which gives you similar functionality that was (more readily) available in the control panel in Win7.

I have enough VMs here at home that I can justify running my own WSUS server (so what updates find their way in is totally under my control), but I suppose you could run the local group policy editor, and configure it to use a non-existent WSUS server. So...no update would ever show up.
Then if there's something you think you absolutely need, you can go to catalog.update.microsoft.com and download whatever you want.
There is an "open prison" in Holland of which the BBC was interviewing its governor. "Aren't you worried that prisoners will just walk out?" they asked. "Well," the governor replied, "if they do that too often we tell them they can't come back!"
The whole world isn't like the USA. Some parts of it are actually reasonably civilised.
What a stupid comeback. Pick a country that is closing prisons at record rates because it doesn't have enough criminals as your argument piece. Holland, is not the rest of the world. Some of the world's worst prisons are in Europe as well.
So, the prisons in Holland are so nice that the prisoners want to come back? Sounds like they are more of a pleasure resort than even American prisons. I thought punishment was the whole idea. I must be too old, or too conservative.
If you think 'goto' is evil, try writing an Assembly program without JMP.
No, punishment is half the idea - the other half being reform. Obviously these are only ever low-risk category prisoners, and the idea is to release them after their sentence with as low a chance that they will re-offend as possible - something most other prisons fail miserably at, where prisoners as often than not come out worse people than when they went in.
