This should be the fucking default too. Don't tell me there is some bullshit option buried in the bottom of some massive drop-down. Consent should not be "opt-in."
@Elizabeth better yet, there should be a central system handling all the updates, instead of each app handling it individually.
@Elizabeth there's a security argument to be made that certain software should be automatically updated by default - but in reality a good implementation of this is not the Windows "every publisher has an update engine" but the debian on-by-default unattended upgrades from apt
@c24h29clo4 Fully agreed. I'd love something like apt for windows or MacOS, or fuck, even something like an app store. Give me a modicum of control over when the fuck random updates occur, allow me to set a schedule, inform me before it happens.
