I knew the "24-hour reboot" (24 hours drive/usage time, not 24 hours real time) was the case with the 2.11 and prior versions but I have never seen anything stating whether or not they carried this over to the 3.0.2 or later versions. Could try and test it I suppose but to be honest between the delayed reboots I am forced to do and the system rebooting on its own I don't think there is a chance in heck of even being able to make it through 24 hours of usage time to find out. With 3.0.2 I had to run delayed reboots constantly and the system did not reboot itself frequently. With 3.5.1 the system reboots itself very frequently (mostly while shut down, not while driving) so I don't have to run as many delayed reboots.

Quite frankly, if the system didn't have to index/build voice commands again after every reboot I'd be fine with it rebooting every 24 hours of real time. The indexing seems to be the only inconvenience of a reboot, everything else seems to be beneficial.

I tried to update mine today, it failed, left me with an inoperable MFT for my commute. Maybe it'll work on the way home.

Yeah, it's certainly nothing I'm going to take them up on.

Attempted money-grab for the lawyers, but nothing of much benefit to me. Typical, sadly.

You would likely get more from an individual action then a class action.
