Re: It is good that microsoft is on hand with excellent advice
"And most Windows users pick Windows due to the speed of the install"
Exactly! A typical install takes less than an hour, and the subsequent updates shouldn't take more than a day or two. Not much downtime at all.
And at the end of it all the same faulty update is installed rendering the machine unbootable.
Well, with some luck the update time is long enough for MS to have time to pull any bad updates!
