Windows 10 Will Push Some Updates Over Limited Data Plans

I'm not the biggest fan of the way Microsoft is pushing everything on its customers. It got really out of hand with Windows 10 and it just seems to be getting worse.

Microsoft has confirmed that the new version of Windows will automatically download updates "required to keep Windows running smoothly" even when you're on a metered connection. What does that mean, exactly? A spokesperson tells Supersite Windows that the operating system will avoid pushing "large" patches and will focus on "critical fixes," but it's not clear where the threshold will be.
