    Win 10 Updates Nightmare


    I have just bought a Dell Inspiron - it came with Windows 10 Home. However the automatic updates are causing real problems - huh, as they are for millions of users. So I want to install Linux Ubuntu in dual boot mode. My premise is that if I'm booted into Linux will this circumvent the automatic downloading and installation of Win 10 updates? I want control of MY laptop like I had with Win 7. Thank you.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    If you are running Linux, Windows just becomes a blob of files on the disc, and not running, so the answer is yes, running Linux will circumvent Win10 from running auto-updates.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
