Re: Windows 10 updates again

Michael Mote

Microsoft is bad about releasing updates that are not ready for prime
time. Unfortunately, they are not alone. The new IOS is very
problematic for those of us who use an iPhone 8. To say that apple and
other software developers are not guilty would be false. And by the
way, can we please keep politics out of this? The government screws up
enough and wastes plenty of money as it is.

The only way Congress would ever try to impose penalties against MS
would be if the pathetic excuse of a President were suddently unable to
rant on Twitter because of bugs in his computer's OS and he personally
demanded that they take action against MS. MS is an absolute monopoly,
which by the way, has powerful lobbyists on its payroll greasing palms
all over Washington, so they can essentially get away with anything
they damn well please with absolute impunity. .

Now I can agree, we haven’t reach such a point yet where drastic
actions are needed . But, this is getting ridiculous. How many times
has a small business had to close its doors until their computers were
back up and running all because MS sent out a poorly designed update?

Congress can't just make laws about anything. What is such a law to
say, that a company shall not send out bad updates or updates without
sufficient review? There are no laws saying that a company shall
continue to perform up to certain standards except for laws regarding
purity of foods and such, public safety laws. You can't have laws
enforcing levels of quality in products. That is what competition is
supposed to do. And where would the army of enforcers come from?
You can't have a law that says that a company shall produce a certain
quality of products.

Other than complaints, even business users can’t force MS to get its
act together. And, I don’t see a major migration over to Macs.
No law yet. But, doesn’t Congress have the authority to create laws?

What law says that a company can't mismanage its product? We'll see
what happens as Microsoft is under increasing pressure from users, and
particularly business users, to administer updates properly. I think it
is ridiculous and unmanageable to have two full updates of Windows a
year. That is, in essence, installing two completely new versions. But
Windows has had a lot of bad incremental updates over the last year as

For me, Windows is the only option for an operating system that I am
willing to consider. So, why can’t our congress fine Microsoft a large
amount of money to force them to get their act together.
Or, is this unrealistic?

Hi Gene! This is getting ridiculous. How dare they, Microsoft release
updates before they make sure that the updates will work first. People,
will be forced to switch to lenox if that continues. If it was other
companies treated their customers in that fashion, there would be such
an outcry where it is possible that those companies might be going
bankrupt. Shame on Microsoft; that is poor workmanship.
