    I can forsee some issues with hardware compatibility (I had that problems with Win7 SP1 when it came out), but otherwise this doesn't really seem like a bad policy to me.

      Oh, if this applies to driver updates, too, I'm totally not down for that. Windows Update and my Brother multi-function printer don't get along as it is, and I'm glad I can keep the former from bothering the latter right now.

        I chuckled upon reading this, largely due to the whirlwind of f-bombs I unleashed earlier today while dealing with a Win10 preview update that absolutely crippled the previously working (albeit precarious) connection with my Brother MF printer. Got it working after a handful of power cycles and driver refreshes, but the pain still haunts me this evening!

          Ah yes, I remember the last time I had Windows Update locate the drivers for my Brother HL-2280DW. To WU's credit, it got the "printer" part of the driver right, but the "multi-function" part... not so much. There was a time in my youth when I didn't mind spending hours upon hours messing around with my computer, diagnosing problems, etc., but nowadays... nowadays I just want the fraggin' thing and everything connected to it to work and stay working, a desire you and most working adults probably share. Ugh... I'm not looking forward to July 29th anymore. -_-
