"They stated quite clearly then that they where getting 4000 new faults reported per day after the release of Vista so while it was tested by Beta Testers it was by no means a Fault Free System.
If your statement was correct Microsoft would not be releasing Patches or Hot Fixes for any of their products but none the less XP is still getting Patches applied and that has to be the Most Tested & Used OS Microsoft has ever released."
If you operate on a sealed system without outside connections, using only hardware from the tested and approved list, install it properly, and only install applications (never updating them, of course) from the tested and approved list, then I suppose it's a reasonable requirement of expecting a bug-free system. Windows has to operate on all sorts of hardware from unknown and untested sources, on millions of machines with users who install every junk piece of software or game they can get their hands on, while connected via a network to billions of computers, many of which are owned by people determined to hack into, barrage with ads, or spy on every other machine out there that they can find a way into.
And you expect them to release an operating system that's "finished", ready for any and all things, past, present and future, with no updates needed, and never a bug showing up. My toaster works that way. To expect that from a dynamic environment such as a computer is either extremely naive or truly ridiculous.
