Why Windows Continues To Suck: Part III
The Final Insult Is Win7 That Shuts Down All By Itself

My previous two posts on the Windows O/S family have provided sufficient background regarding my reasons for despising Windows and Microsoft, and here is the final insult: Windows 7.
There are many good reasons to buy Windows, including the desire to feel enmity, the urge to do nothing, the willingness to become infested with viruses, ad infinitum. The latest reason to get Windows is the best of all, you want your computer to shut down at random. That's right, you desire your computer the shut down at random.
During the Rick Latona Auctions on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. South Beach in Miami Beach, the auction media was being displayed on the large projectors through a feed from a Windows 7 laptop. This is not unusual. It is done regularly.
The auction, however, was interrupted when the laptop, a brand-new Compaq, built by HP (HP has its lips fully suckling Microsoft's manhood.) suddenly shut down and displayed on the screen for all to see: Windows Is Configuring Your Updates: Do Not Shut Off Your Computer.
Of course, people who love Microshit will tell us all we have to do is disable the automatic updates, and they are correct. But this new phenom of randomly shutting down a computer, whilst the user is in the middle of their work flow, is a complete insult to everyone's intelligence. Intelligentsia do not reside at Microsoft.
This is not unique the aforementioned Compaq computer, built by HP. Another fine product, fully suckling the manhood of Microcrap, is Acer, which also suffered a similar fate during the on-site registrations at T.R.A.F.F.I.C., leading me to believe this is obviously a Windows 7 issue. Two different computers, exact same problem, both with Window 7 Home Premium, which is another joke, anyway.
Why would you build operating systems for different classes? I can understand building different hardware configurations, based upon need, but the core operating system should be the same across all hardware platforms.
Well, it provided the fodder for this blog post, which many will either ignore or use to chastise me for suckling Steve Jobs' manhood.
Only if I could be so lucky.
Danny, I don't use Windblows 7 on production machines. True, it's on my laptop that I haul around to have Net connectivity but I find Vista to be very stable after the 1,000 or so patches they released :D As for Steve Jobs, he can keep his overpriced wares - one can use great variants such as Ubuntu linux.
