Microsoft is at it again, and they're downright determined to make WaaS (Windows as a Service), I mean, Windows 10 completely unusable for people in the boonies, while simultaneously doing everything they can to kill off versions of Windows that work. 
One of the only ways to keep Winblows 10 under control has been to set your wireless connection as "metered", but soon that won't work either. Insider build 15058 downloads updates anyway. This doesn't mean it's set in stone, as it is just a preview build and they could remove that functionality before it reaches consumers, but you know how Microsoft operates; if it will screw their customers over more, they'll do it.

Most reasonable folks agree with your take on MS's heavy handed approach. Thank you for the heads up about the update.
