I lost 1.5GB while watching a movie on my WIN8 laptop... it downloaded updates in the background...... I ALMOST smashed the thing!
One of the many reasons I stay the hell away from Windows as much as possible.
OS X doesn't force these updates by default. It tells you about them - you decided what to do with that info. Perfect.
You can tell Windows how you want to do the updates. You do this on installation and can change it anytime.
Always select Notify but don't download option. This is the first thing I make sure of when installing Windows on new machines.
