... it got to where I started despising "Patch Tuesday" every month. Since I live in the sticks I have to use satellite for my internet and those updates took a good chunk of my allotted bandwidth. The final straw was MS not releasing SP2 for Win7 (heck, even Vista got SP2) which makes a clean install a very tedious job. I think they did this to force people to update to the horrible Win 8.
Life is so much simpler now since I switched to Mac
I totally understand. I dread "Patch Tuesday." I have an office full of Windows 7 computers. I will say we have a long term plan that includes new computers that will be Macs.
I use to have satellite at home too. I would have to schedule large downloads between 3am to 6am. Finally got DSL which was actually a huge improvement.
I just get upset over the fact that Microsoft makes us pay big bucks for OS upgrades that require frequent patches. While Apple supplies OS upgrades with very few patches at little to no cost. So if they issue a bad patch one in a blue moon, I do not find it to be that unforgivable.
And lets not forget Apple tends to deal with issues fast. I have had Microsoft patches that were bad and they either took months to fix or just told you to uninstall it. My favorite was when I had to remove memory from my desktop editor because it caused my usb ports to quit functioning. They acknowledged the problem but it took almost a year before they issued a patch to fixed that.
So I can wait for a revised 8.0.1 update. Just glad I did not download the original.
