Comment Idea for Microsoft (Score 1) 200

The people who need quality patches that have undergone thorough regression testing will likely pay for it.

"Windows Update Premium Subscription" should delay patches for all products until they are verified correct, and allow the user to schedule the patch runs.

$200/year, and many would likely pay it.

But it does!

When I can manufacture in China where I don't have to pay for air scrubbers or sewage treatment but instead dump the waste chemicals in the river and simply blow all the fumes from manufacturing outside I have much higher profits.

The EPA strangles companies trying to make maximum profits by not blotting out the sun with pollution or turning the waterways into chemical tubs of death.

Rich people profits are far more important than clean water and clean air.

Sounds like someone is pissy he cant fly through a residential area at 50mph instead of the 25mph he is supposed to go. Speed bumps around here are no problem at all if you take them at or below the posted speed limit. The only people that hate them are the self righteous greedy assholes that speed through a residential area.

Does that newbie want to just be a user or does that newbie want to learn?

User? Ubuntu hands down or it's variants like Mint.
to learn to become an expert in linux? Slackware, because you have to learn how to configure everything with minimal di it for you tools.

Slackware you will have a far FAR better understanding about linux once you get going.
