If I was an Apple customer I think I'd be more annoyed a charger wasn't included with a phone than the fact they use an Apple specific port...

I haven't seen any indication the system will be locked down at all, so you should be able to do things like repartition the internal drive and install Windows in the empty space, or boot off external USB storage, etc.
First thing I need to know is if this version of SteamOS is running atop Debian like the last PC version.

After you enable background updates, if you check your Task Scheduler, you'll see a task called "Mozilla\Firefox Background Update [randomnumber]" that's set to run every 7 hours. That's what does the update check. Chrome and Edge are the same; they actually run two scheduled tasks, one daily, and one every hour. You can disable autoupdates in all three browsers either manually in their settings, or via group policy.On Windows, updates can now be applied in the background while Firefox is not running.
If it can do that then it is, indeed, running.

Lode Runner was one of my favorite games back in the late 80s.

Dang, I hate it when they offer a game that I had already paid for a while back, but I've actually been lucky in that regard, Control being one of the very few Epic freebies that I previously gave up cash for, even though it was at a discount. I tried to play Control twice a few months apart, and just got frustrated with it when getting stuck on a boss fight with no motivation to keep at it. Just okay gameplay for me, so I wish I'd waited for now. Genshin was fun for about a month for me, until it turned into a boss grind for rare levelling mats. Might come back some times and check out the new areas added since.

That's the first I've heard of massless batteries. Fascinating.
