Wasn't there someone who was recently bragging about how Apple products don't sneak data in the background?

Sorry but I don't see how a mine vs your comment is helpful for the discussion but perhaps your intent was to be humorous. The issue is that it IS happening and Mac users with High Sierra who are on satellite might want to know how to set their System Preferences to avoid background updates. Maybe there are Mac users here who have not seen the information as yet. So many posts here about the loss of data and this situation could cause a problem. I am still running El Capitan but nonetheless, I have made sure my settings are as described in the article.

FWIW I have a 28" iMac with the High Sierra upgrade and it works just fine.  Mine is a bit older being the late 2012 version but has no problem with this upgrade.  I waited about a month after it came out to let others work out the bugs and then did the upgrade.  It stinks however that Apple is pushing the upgrade as older units might have some trouble and that is one reason why I ditched Microsucks because I was sick of the constant upgrades and background downloads that can kill you on a satellite connection.
