Yes, I'm bringing that one up again.

No matter how many times MS tweaks the "reboot automatically after updates" options, I've still gotten bitten. I left my work VM absolutely loaded with all sorts of items before the weekend, and came back to a mostly empty desktop this morning. Turns out the machine rebooted at around 5:35pm yesterday (a Sunday). I hadn't looked at/logged into it since I had left it on Friday.

I'm seriously considering using a server OS for my next development VM (which I'm going to be putting together when we switch over to VS2019). Primarily because the user still has the final say as to when to reboot the OS for server versions. At least that's the case with Server 2012 R2 (my VM host is still patiently waiting for me to tell it to reboot after installing the April patches). I'm hoping 2016/2019 haven't changed in that respect. It might be overkill, but seems like the simplest solution to me. I'm not gonna mess around with group policies to try to override default behavior. It's gotten so complicated these days even the dedicated policy experts can't make heads or tails of everything that needs to be overridden, and in what order (or so I'm told).

Any caveats I should know about running a server OS for a development box?
