Proprietary software means better quality, right? Wrong! Try Windows Update – IV

Windows Update should be renamed Windows Obstipate

Windows Update is the probably the worst part of the OS. The downloads tend to be huge and hog all bandwidth. This means you can’t let it download updates in the background. No, you can’t do the update when you are working. Either it stops you from shutting down or it prevents you from logging in upon restart. It seems to be deliberately designed to slow you down and get on your nerves. Just when you want to shut down and leave, that stupid piece of *@#$*&) has the temerity to say “Don’t shut down your computer.”

Ever wondered why bootup is taking so long? Even before showing you the login screen, Windows is downloading stuff from the Internet and installing them. I literally pull the plug on this one – by removing the LAN cable. Then, Windows sheepishly gets to the login screen without issue. You see, this software was written by a monkey and for a monkey. If you you try to use it, it will make a monkey out of you! It is not designed for human beings.

Microsoft Windows Update should ideally be renamed Windows Obstipate.
