Whose computer is it anyway?

Microsoft has probably been updating your computer without your permission.

It seems that they just want your Windows XP and Vista maintenance experience to be smooth. It would be so much more inconvenient to admit that they have to patch one more thing, wouldn't it?

Yes, that's very intrusive cuz I was working the other day, went in for a meeting, came back to my office and discovered my PC was being rebooted. If it was 10/31, I'd have thought that it was haunted.

This won't happen to you on your Mac. It can be set to check for updates automatically, but doesn't install them without your permission.
