damn if you do, damn if you don't. If MS (or other manufacturers) would not provide updates the same people would complain again.
I'm happy software gets updated, and automatically. I don't have to "patch" anything since it is automatic.
MS provide FREE updates for 10 years from release date on. Any other software with such service requires an expensive subscription.
sure one could do it right the first time, but the OS is so complex and there are new software, applications and hardware every day. How would that work and still be modern? today W7 supports USB 2.0. Now, next year therwill be USB 3.0. How wouldthat work without updates, unless USB 3.0 specs were known years ago and didn't change. Same with USB 4.0 in 3 years, or so.
