Well, if the water is encroaching on the land, that won't affect the SEA LIFE now, will it? The ocean will still have fish in it.

This sounds like a terrible ecological disaster, but maybe it's just an opportunity for the people who live on the coast to adapt to the situation. How about building modern FLOATING canneries and docks that can change with the environment. You can try to build a levee to hold back the water, but that will only work for so long.

I wonder if this is to help users who don't know what they're doing. You know, the kind that click on any link that appears on their screen, install any software no matter what kind of crap it is, and generally don't maintain their systems properly. When they have reliability problems, they call Microsoft for support, and the support agent usually just says "Reinstall the OS". Well, with these feature updates effectively doing a reinstall twice a year, that might help cut down on those calls.
