Patch looks like Microsoft FAIL, quacks like FAIL, is actually quite good

Did you get the memo?

Vista is in extended support, which means (basically) only critical security updates, rather than general improvements/enhancements. So if your still running Vista (all 3 of you) then no updates for you!

Re: A shining example of how Microsoft got it wrong

"There is no easy way to add on the GUI afterwards if need be. If, you opt for the safety of the GUI to start with you have the Modern UI ... on a server!"

Very easy in fact if you bother to read the documentation

Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra, Server-Gui-Shell –Restart

Just as easily removed as well. Only caveat is you might need the Windows installation files, if you installed core from the go as it saved disk space by not caching them on the system drive.

Freesat eyes YouView USP for next-gen UI

Thumb Down

Nice looking UI but very poor on using the available screen space, lots of blank space and very little information shown. Worse than the new Sky HD UI which doesn't allow the planner to show more information when the mini-tv is turned off.
