Bug, Vulnerabilities, Critical Updates, Oh, My!
I don't know about anyone else, but I tend to think that the longer a list of fixes is, the better. All software has bugs, one of the main differences between OSes is how the developer handles them. I like Linux because Linux doesn't like bugs and the community hunts them down with a vengeance. MS rarely seems to care.So this (hopefully) means that MS is starting to do a better job of maintaining its products.
I, for one, would like to see more bug fixes every month. It seems kind of strange that MS going on a bug killing spree is something that we should spin as a bad thing.
Don't get me wrong, I hate 'doze as much as the next guy and I'm quite content to stay on Debian to do everything I need, but as one of the guys who gets called when the sh*t hits the fan with a 'doze box, anything that makes the Windows OS look more like an OS as opposed to Swiss cheese is a fantastic thing. Now, this list of fixes barely does anything to make Windows a better OS, but if MS hunted bugs (or better yet, actually tried to weed a good many out before a release as opposed to saying "Ok, usable enough" and pushing it out the door) like the *nix community does Windows could actually look like something other than dairy products from the alps.
Sure, I'd make less because I'd do less cleaning of fecal matter from walls, but I'd gladly trade that for just doing upgrades or replacing a part every now and then. If anything it would make my job quieter and more enjoyable...
But, whatever, may as well go with the crowd...
"BOO, MICROSOFT!!! TO HELL WITH YOU AND YOUR OBSCENELY LONG LIST OF BUG FIXES!!!"
