Re: So...

....what would you prefer? MS to not patch bugs?

Not at all- just wondering how the older versions in particular managed to work in the first place, as they musy have been about 10% good code and 90% bugs.

Just another regular occurrence. like Halley's comet coming around, although that may stop one day.
