Windows Microsoft just posted on its blog about how Windows 8 is going to handle automatic updating and the consequent system restarts - and they're changing a few things around. They want to make the process less disruptive, and there's reason to cheer: no more popup notifications begging for restarts.

Which is just one more reason to disable automatic updates. Nothing should ever install or update itself without asking first. It's just asking for trouble otherwise. Maybe they more or less have to have the automatic updates for those folks who don't really know how to use a computer beyond the basics, but for anyone who's actually profficient with computers, automatic updates are nothing be trouble IMHO.
