I set my windows update to allow me to decide when to apply the updates, for instance, not immediately before field day or some contest I plan to join. Pro edition may allow more control - will see.

Or, that could be a beta requirement. It isn't a product yet.

I'm sure there will be a way to stop automatic updates, either in the product or through some hack that would interrupt the process.  That will probably be one of the first things I do after upgrading.

Windows 10 is still in beta and will not be officially released until July 29th.  You are getting operating system REPLACEMENTS, not updates. Until then all reported problems related to Windows 10 will be classified as "not a problem" as we do not support it yet nor is there any action FlexRadio is prepared to take to investigate or resolve until Windows 10 is a released operating system.
