Microsoft wants making multipatching multireboot faster but makes a mess of it

for some old-school securitypeople like me, we remember that at first Microsoft asked multiple reboots and each patch had its own reboots. This was sometimes a hassle and so on but you were sure that a patch worked even if it was one at a time but when a patch posed problems, you just went back in time and went on to the next patch 

now Microsoft has changed this into one reboot for all the patches and this has so many risks because there are so many things that have to change in so many different sections of the kernel and libraries that you can never be sure that all these changes are done in the right order and don't conflict with each other

the best thing that Microsoft can do is to return to multiboot or to give the possibility to multiboot if one choses this or if there are problems
