I fucking hate every other Windows Update...

...Breaks my computer every month until the next month's update fixes everything.

Oh well, still beats paying Apple $30 per service pack disguised as cats since 2002, though.

I haven't had any problems with Windows 7 since the paradoxical happenstance of a slim probability of an error occurring at some point in the future, so unfortunately I have no advice for you here, nor can I share in your pain. However, Bill Gates > Steve Jobs.

Even though I know you're essentially a programmer, I use Adobe CS5/MS Office/Google Chrome quite heavily. This shit is a pain for third party apps, regardless if Apple or MS.

Despite what Being and Welfleation say about Boot Camp, guess what... I don't have the need to dual boot like Apple does.

Do you mean that these updates are creating conflictions with those programs?



(ps; the Bill Gates > Steve Jobs thing... not serious, frankly I'm not into that rivalry at all)

Yes, mostly with my java-heavy apps.

Java isn't going away...

MS/Apple... deal with it.

You're Indian and in tech support; how are you not using Linux?

I'm having problems with java and several appz. with xp.

linux is not a solution to problems with java.

At least the latest version os suse still conflicts with java player.



didn't a recent adobe update cause a security problem in windows ?

doesn't matter.

People earn a living both causing and fixing these things.

obla dee obla da life goes on... brah.

i would hardly describe Lion as being a service pack... we will see how mountain lion goes.
but some people want to hate on apple for anything they can, so they will never be happy.


but, either way my advice: ubuntu.

Every presidential candidate in 2008 proposed a stimulus package, and Mitt Romney’s was the largest.

And they're changing the Windows logo.




I must be getting older because this change fills me with hate.

Stupidest thing I've read in a while. So which tier of MS pricing do you prefer? The Professional at almost 400, Home at 175 or basic? It really doesn't matter because they all suck. Yet you just keep going?

Amazon - $47 Windows Home Premium

Amazon - $76 Upgrade to Pro

or

Sears - $100 Upgrade Home Premuim to Ultimate

So at most it'll cost you $147.

And that's if you're doing it the legal way.

Expecting poor results is then required.
