I am not a ‘blame Microsoft for everything thats wrong in the world’ kind of person. Yet.
Today, on signing into Windows Live Messenger I was informed that there was a newer version available and I must install it in order to continue. ‘Must’, you say? Oh wait, I get it, will this update enable the system to read my mind and magically type my messages? No? So then did my dad marry Microsoft and is it now my mother? No? Then why MUST I update it NOW?
If all I want to do is send a few ASCII messages or if I am in a hurry or if I simply don’t have the bandwidth to spare I would like the option of not installing that update or at the very least installing it at a later point in time. Why MS would think otherwise is beyond me.
