Re: Yet Another Window Nuggie (YAWN) And most of us are doing that

The thing I have always HATED about MS updates is that they sometimes took a lot of time to install, and at a former workplace, the manglement didn't want to suffer the downtime, so no patching. And slowly, over time they were more and more exposed.

After i left, they didn't bother getting anyone with ANY IT experience to replace me, and in about 8 months they were pwned. And, due to the circumstances surrounding my departure, I refused to assist them. It made me so very warm and fuzzy inside when I heard that every one of their PC's were infected, and remediation service were going to cost them serious $$$$.

Today, I oversee a company using Linux systems, and we have so few problems, I have time to do stuff that, if we were stuck with Windows and its accompanying niggles; I would never have to time to accomplish.
