why would they make that restriction? how am I supposed to fix my neighbours computer if it's in an update loop, or an update screwed up his pc?

I have a windows phone, a windows pc and an xbox but damn I really consider going to linux or bsd

Because they have done their maths and they think that it is in their and the targeted audience's interest to have the computers updated with latest updates/patches/hotfixes etc.

how am I supposed to fix my neighbours computer if it's in an update loop, or an update screwed up his pc?

It is their OS, it is their problem, and if this decision ultimately results in millions of PCs going into update loop... guess who will be hurt most by that?

Well, the Insider program is continuing for every update, so it's extremely unlikely as they're all externally tested on both Fast and Slow rings after internal testing. But, if it does happen, you will be able to download bootable ISOs that will stop the update using a boot disk.

So, the testing goes like this:

Staff -> Canary -> Fast ring Insider -> Slow ring Insider -> General public
