Comment Deploying to many machines is hard (Score 5, Informative) 465

I'm the author of the hotfix and one could expect me to say 'yes, please go ahead and install it on your corporate network with thousands of machines'.

But I won't say that.

First of all deploying any software on a large network is a serious task. It should be carefully planned and performed with the correct (read: responsible) approach.

The hotfix must be tested on as many machines as possible. Possible negative consequences must be determined and decided upon if they are acceptable or not.

In short, more rigorous testing is required.
