Wow, I've just reinstalled XP from scratch and I see there's 33 “critical updates and service packs” that I need to load and another 22 “Windows XP updates” and another three “driver updates.” Dang, I wish that Microsoft would release a new OS every three months or so that had all the fixes already loaded. That would save me a ton of time.
I bet that most people don't even bother to upgrade and patch their machines with the latest stuff.
I really hope that Microsoft makes some dramatic improvements to this system. It's just really cumbersome to load a new OS, and then spend the next five hours simply getting up to date and I haven't even started loading apps yet! [The Scobleizer Weblog]
