It certainly won't keep it from trying however.

[Edit]

If the purpose is to avoid installing updates all the time, those who recommend Linux have clearly not spent a lot of time with it.

If I was to compare the total bandwidth used for updates in a month by a single Linux system with a single Windows system - Linux is the biggest hog, by far.

This is one of my VM hosts I have here at home. This one has nothing but Linux guests:
Windows PowerShell

PS C:\Users\administrator> (get-vm).count
77

I like to tinker with Linux. I have a number of versions of CentOS, Debian, Elementary, Fedora, Korora, Linux Lite, Mageia, Manjaro, Mint, OpenSUSE, Oracle Linux, RHEL, SLES, SolydXK, Ubuntu, ZorinOS and a few lesser-known distributions.

I can say with confidence they're all bandwidth hogs when it comes to updates.
