the old style update system, where a notification came in your task tray

Which too many people ignored, leaving their machines unpatched for years.

And then promptly blamed Microsoft when their machine was compromised using a security vulnerability which had been patched 18 months earlier.

The current system isn't perfect - no system is. But if your machine is forcing a restart, that means you've been ignoring the "please restart" notifications for too long.
