Is Microsoft at fault

By jterry ·
Why do I read about so many poeple who say they are not going to update windows to SP2 or install any Microsoft updates and than want to blame Microsoft when there PC gets corrupted? They are not only making their own PC vulnerable but opening themselves to be a Bot to infect others.

by jmgarvin In reply to Go looking at...

If you value your sanity never go with intel chipsets AGAIN. I like the ASUS boards and will NEVER use Inhell MOBOs again....arg...die 815 chipset die!

If you can't install Windows Xp and SP2 as a clean install on a P$ machine your problem is not Microsoft.

Clearly . . .

You don't know jack. Did you even read Col's post? Did you understand what was being said? I'm going to guess "no".

I apologize

apotheon told me that I was disrespectable to you in this discussion. I had to read back through it to find it but I believe he was right. I don't know what I was thinking at the time but I should have read your comments a little more carefully. I do respect you because in this whole discussion you have been one of the two inputs that I found very intelligent and interesting even if you don't fully agree with me. Again I'm sorry.

Don't worry about it

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to I apologize

To me it is all water off a ducks back.

We do not have to agree that is what makes discussions like this interesting and how we all learn.

by jmgarvin In reply to MS is not to blame!

"Rather than taking a look at compatibility issues that may have something to with other programs they are running (i.e., SBC Yahoo! DSL software), they find it easier to blame Microsoft."

WTF? Are you high? SP2 BREAKS apps! Why does it break apps? **** it hosed my install of Office 2k and at my NIC driver...nice. It doesn't like my laptops TFT-LCD displaying at its native resolution (1600x1200), it says that my "monitor" doesn't support the resolution (it does).

SP2 is a nightmare. Unless you have a VERY vanilla setup.

I'm not going to stop whining until MS FIXES SP2 so that it doesn't break everything.

And what is so wrong with vanilla?

by jdclyde In reply to HA!

I like vanilla. I like the ice cream, and I like to cook with it and think it is great!

why does everyone always give vanilla such a bad wrap? They must be M$ users and have decided to have a vanilla conspiricy! Where is Oliver Stone when you need him?

Until then, leave my vanilla alone!

nobody's slamming vanilla here

by apotheon In reply to And what is so wrong with ...

Nobody said that SP2 is only easy with a CRAPPY vanilla setup. The reference was just to a "vanilla" setup. Nobody said there was anything wrong with that.

The more pertinent question is this: What's wrong with a non-vanilla setup? More to the point: Why is Microsoft's definition of a vanilla setup so friggin' limited?

Of course, I have an answer to that: Microsoft's definition of a vanilla setup is that which best serves a market dominance strategy for business growth. Considering that market dominance is bad for the end user, that doesn't much recommend Microsoft's business practices for me.

I hate when I have to explain a joke.

Wasn't talking setups, I was talking FOOD! Your just WAY too serious.

sigh, guess I'm not as funny as I think I am......

Or maybe it could be

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to DRAT!

That since this is a serious topic and not one of the ones where we can just joke around nobody is looking for a laugh.

I got it but because a lot of people here are defending M$ to the hilt and others are not quite as nice they are just taking every chance to push their point.

Maybe a few funny faces would have helped. :)
