Lol exactly what I was thinking. With Linux you can chose to be on the bleeding edge and wonder if each update will nuke your system and not be able to boot or you can sit back and watch the show with an LTS version. With Windows now you get a sort of beta rolling release that's force installed, no choice in the matter. While there are LTS versions of Windows, they are basically unobtainable to the average consumer.
