By sleepin'dawg ·
Microsoft has published 20 new patches several of which are involved with Vista. This is guaranteed to make me all warm and fuzzy about Windoze.

No comments about Vista until my employer adopts it. I'm not about to do free QA work for Microsoft on my actual personal computer.

My employer is considering installing Vista sometime this year.

And the day before the deployment check yourself into the nearest horsepital suffering from Information Overload and milk the Insurance for every day possible. You may just be there long enough to totally miss all the mess that is brought about buy this action.

Over here most of the ISP's are refusing to support Vista at the moment and many of the Broadband Modems will not work with Vista. Makes life so much easier when you can not connect to the Internet with your new Vista Loaded computer doesn't it? :^0

It's taken M$ 6 years to come up with the mess known as Vista what do you expect them to do provide all the 25,875,896,383,156 Patches on the first month before even these computers can be connected to the Internet?

That would kill off sales of this silly product so instead of having something that part way works they are willing to slowly dish out the fixes over the next 10 years.

I think that 10 years is optimistic.

As they have done so many times in the past, I would venture a guess that they will decommission the product before they can get it completely patched.

Viva Linux!!!
