Microsoft is always screwing things up (they need to be more concerned with system speed/stability and letting the user control their computer) as they should have left the option to upgrade as the users discretion (which can be easily accessed by manually going to the 'Windows Update' screen) as I think a forced upgrade should only happen when the user has no choice (like when security updates for their current version are no longer being released due to Microsoft dropping support for it which I think each version of Windows 10 released is supported for 18 months or so). but short of that the upgrades should not be forced even though I get many people simply won't do it because they are too lazy/or don't care etc but even cases like these the OS itself could suggest upgrading from time to time with a small note to the user somehow and I figure worst case, Microsoft could force the upgrade when it will put the users system security at risk like when there is no more updates offered for say 1909 for example. according to the official info on Microsoft's website (i.e. support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet ) it says Windows 10 1909 is supported til May 11th 2021.
that's one reason why I like Linux Mint (I am on v19.3-Cinnamon (v20 is available recently but a clean install does not like my computer so I have to stay on v19.3 for the time being, but maybe the upgrade will fair better than the clean install which ill be able to attempt about a couple of weeks from now once they release the official upgrade instructions)) as I have been on that as my primary(/and only) OS since Jan 2019. it does not force you to install updates as the user is in total control of whats allowed to install.
