Re: Nothing like having your work day extended a few more hours because 'The Cloud' is unavailable.
I made my comment with the utopian assumption that updates never cause malfunctions. The reason that I consider continually-updating software to be bad is because it can change at any time in ways that make you alter your workflow. Anything that changes workflow is something that shouldn't be foisted on users unilaterally. Users should be able to choose if and when they want to make that change.
Service packs rarely changed workflows. They mostly fixed bugs, instead. That sort of update is fine.
