Y'all think Win10 is bad about forced reboots? Try Server 2016 which has the same forced reboot policy. "B...b...but you can set active hours!" Yeah, about that, see when you have a PDC and you have users that access your network 24/7/365 from both local and remote locations and you use AD as your authentication schema, that becomes problematic.

In a way, though, it has been a blessing in disguise. It has finally woken up some of my fellow sysadmins who have had their heads shoved way up MS' ass and we're looking at better, Linux based solutions for a lot of what we do.

Pretty much. I run Enterprise on my main workstation and it's been a pretty poor experience. I unfortunately have a lot of purchased software that runs on Windows so I tossed it on my one server and that has proven to be a mistake, definitely a lot more downtime. All my VMs are Linux of course but my server would be, too, if I didn't rely on so much Windows software for the pre-existing setup. Microsoft is at least aware of these issues and supposedly will be changing their approach. I think we've heard that before...
