Booting into windows for the first time in about two months triggered the OS and every app installed on it to update, completely maxing both network and disk io.
It feels like every application at once decided that I do not have agency as a person and can't be trusted to install the updates myself, and forcing me to keep my hands off my computer for 30 minutes, because it's literally locking up.
This i7-6700k/GTX1080 runs Linux 99% of the time, and performs like a dream. There should be no reason for it to devolve into ass just because everything wants updates as soon as I run it.
@Ganonmaster remember the 11th commandment: "Thou shalt not boot Windows". At least not on your own hardware …
