The article I read, with pictures of several of the System Options screens, clearly shows that the immediate reboot capability will be an option and enabled/disabled by the user. Also, the article implied that this would be implemented just for Windows 10 Home.

Basically what the above article says also. Curious why Windows 10 Home (only)?

Not directly Hauptwerk, but directly Internet.

The reason Russia and North Korea and Israel and the US all got such devastating results in their attacks on foreign infrastructure is because ordinary people are bad at updating the security software on their personal computers. People let their security software get old and vulnerable, and then weeks later they're hosting Stuxnet or Wannacry or Russia's wifi listening posts. :mrgreen:

Ed,

I imagine that the reason Windows 10 Professional won't be equipped with that feature is that Microsoft anticipates the majority of such installations will be managed on the Enterprise level where software updates and reboots are managed centrally. Windows 10 Home isn't meant to be managed centrally, thus the inclusion of a new maintenance feature. Just guessing, of course!

Quite a reasonable assumption, Greg.
