It was sitting at "Getting Window ready - Don't turn off your computer" at 0% for quite a while (didn't track time, but seemed to be such for a half hour or more.
I recently bought a new computer.
The first thing I did, was wipe Windows and install linux.
My previous computer had Win 8.1, but I never used it except for running updates and updating anti-virus. I'm so glad to be free of Windows.

Re: Windows 10 updates being very slow???
I'm on Mac but haven't updated my machine, not even for minor things, since March because Apple never tells you which updates include a reboot. I'm in the middle of a development cycle with a complex environment (PHP, ReactJS, NodeJS, MUI, MySQL, nginx). I have 120 windows open, about 30% are browser windows, and about 200 browser window tabs, and well over a hundred Emacs buffers. If my machine reboots I would have to reconstruct my environment, a lengthy task.
This is a unique situation for me. In the past I've always been developing in linear languages, a programming style I'm already very familiar with, but in this cycle I'm using ReactJS/NodeJS. I am not yet intuitive writing code that is event-driven. Many browser tabs are open on pages about info/aspects/issues with ReactJS, NodeJS or MUI.
After my next reboot it'll probably be a day before I'm able to resume developing, and it would be days before everything was back to normal.
And so I continue on with my Mac that hasn't rebooted in over half a year. I will likely do an update shortly after I release to the server and have all the new code securely source controlled.

Re: Windows 10 updates being very slow???
Another "is this thing working" slow update, which turned out to not be as bad as last time.
Windows 10 optional updates? Not doing, as my suspicion is that they're trying to install more crapware that I don't want.
Thoughts?
