    Have they fixed it yet so when you click 'Update and shutdown' the computer actually shuts down when its updated..?

    More importantly, does this mean I can plug in a USB stick and never worry about an enforced update ever again?

    I like your thinking, sir.

    Nice and lateral.

    My bet would be no, it doesn't. Shame.

    But I do like your thinking.

    If the USB stick has a Linux installer on it, yes you can

    As for Windows, it sounds like there is already a fix for this. Which is just as well, we have a Windows tablet around here that doesn't have enough flash storage on board to handle a Windows update so *has* to have a USB stick plugged in to get upgrades.
