This comes in combination with Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise users’ ability to permanently disable automatic updates which are forced upon consumers and shows the growing divide between how Microsoft is treating consumers versus corporations.

They are lying, I cannot disable automatic updates on my Windows 10 Pro. I can only delay it for 7 days tops.

Yes, they are lying. You cannot stop the Enterprise LTSB version from making connections out either. This is easily proven with wireshark.

making connections out either

Firewall rules. As far as Enterprise, WSUS and you manually check updates first. However I am not working in a Win10 environment (yet) so I might be wrong. Currently we are blocking telemetry updates, the sites that do call out (from telemetry) just in case, and are going through each update (we always did anyways) that gets pushed from our servers.

E: it seems like I may have been a little unclear. I mean a physical firewall. Not the software one Microsoft bundles their OS with.

This can't be blocked via local hosts.conf ip/port blocking or various other router or software based blocking? I'm sure it has all been tried, but I'm completely out of the loop on this issue. Thanks in advance for any insights!

...after that, the "later" option goes away, and it makes you racist.

Joke's on them - I was plenty racist before W10.

You can, but you need to go to services and completely disable windows updates at the root. Works a charm.

A lot of sources will point to the ability to set a connection as a "metered connection" which will disable "most" automatic updates from coming through on that connection; however, this doesn't prevent security updates and you can only set a wireless connection as "metered".
