Microsoft update blunders going out of control

Quote:
We have had an absolute deluge of problem updates from Redmond recently and some have been serious. What's up at Microsoft?

The last several months have seen a disturbing string of problems in updates released for Microsoft products. Last week we saw three. It's time to worry about what's behind it all.
Quote:
There's another complication potentially at fault in these bugs: Microsoft silently patches many security problems. Who knows, perhaps the Kyrgyz/Mongolian and Ruble updates did a lot more than Microsoft claimed they did. If an undocumented function of an update were to cause problems it wouldn't be surprising for Microsoft to dissemble in their explanations. Of course I'm speculating here, but it's not like we have an official and logical explanation on which to rely.

Upgrade to what? Like the poster I'm already running Win7 and Win8.1. Also have Win10 TP on a computer. Maybe the Linux Mint 17.1 I have on a Desktop and a Notebook are upgrades?

Seems like they finally got it right with Window 7. Will skip 8 , 9 and 10, so what's left -- MAC?

I wouldn't be surprised, and also, take in mind Windows 8 has been having problems with updates this year...

Updates have been exhibiting problems since always, MS rushes things too much, that's why many IT's wait for a SP, so they can catch all the updates, revisited and fixed. I do that too BTW, I just lurk here to see if there are critical security patches announced, install, and that's all. After a rather rude BSOD I had years ago... I decided to disable WU and just install the critical stuff...

Let's hope they improve this... someday XD, Until then, it's better to control what to update and what not

Having been around Windows since v3.1, I'm not sure much has changed in regards to this subject. Windows is much bigger with each version and far more integrated too. MS has never been known for pre-release testing at very high levels, so I'm not surprised that W7 updates continue to have bugs. Windows is what it is and always will be.

This is the reason I choose to manually update a week from the update release date.
