Windows 7: Dear Adobe...

Dear Adobe...

Dear Adobe,

Thank you for fixing the vulnerability in your flash player. However, I would like to ask a couple things of you:

Please stop pushing your Download center on us. When I clicked on the "install" button in Firefox, you installed the latest update as well as the download center, something I did not ask for. How about asking from now on if we would like this feature, or just the basic fix?

Thank you for sneaking in "Get Plus" somewhere along the line, which I had to uninstall manually. Again, would you please ask if we would like this feature instead of bluntly shoving it into my browser.

While you're at it, how about writing some code into your update software that actually uninstalls the old, vulnerable versions instead of leaving them there without our knowledge, and then, when a program like Securina points out they are still there, users having to go in and manually delete these items.

(I sent the E mail, I'm awaiting a reply)

If you didn't already know Adobe is by far one of the most evil companies out there, it's in the same league as Google and some would say Apple (but I beg to differ, Apple's just a bit exclusive, not evil).

I have already started a campaign to ditch Flash all together to stop giving Adobe the business and thus forcing them to compete with the competition to regain their customers and not just stand idle with the half baked programming language and player known as flash.

For most people giving up flash is easy.

Just uninstall flash player from your PC and opt in to YouTube in HTML5 .

This will cover the vast majority of your flash needs, any other flash based services you use regularly may have an option to run in HTML5, if so opt into them too; if not send them an angry email saying I am no longer using this service because it requires the use of Flash, please create an HTML5 version and try and go without it.

Probably hear from them about the time 64 bit Flash comes out. Which if past history is anything to go by should be in about 5 years.

Oh dear what has Microsoft done... I have used the beta since it came out without major issue but, now with a clean install of the RC I find I simply cannot work with it.

Dear Microsoft, Homegroups still not right, why?
Ok, i was up very late last night tinkering around with the network. I already had 7100 on main rig, now was installing on lappy. I have been a big cheerleader for homegroups, but I have yet to see the entire progress completed. I'm not sure even a MS tech truly understands, and understands why...
