Scenario: Windows 10 on a HP tablet consistently stops on a routine Windows Update around 80%. Multiple reboots. No resolution. I turn to the Microsoft Support Forum, find no answer. Click on the Online Chat with Support.
After one sentence describing the issue, I only get this as a solution:

Okay, I suggest you to contact a local technician for the further assistance with this issue.
Hello, I am the local technician (Microsoft Certified Professional). What kind of answer is that? Back to the laptop with Ubuntu Linux. Thanks anyway.
Moral of the story: Use Linux.
