    ok..unless i'm doing and understanding something wrong, which is quite possible....it seems that once again, MS is proving that windows is truly idiotic.

    why?

    this whole daylight savings time that US, Canada and Mexico are doing.

    on my macs, i received a lovely update notice...dloaded...no problem.

    but for windows...no no no no....they say, 'Let's not make that too easy for you shall we?"

    i have to update windows first through some link...and then i have to seperately update outlook. wtf? i guess it would be too easy for windows to just get the damn update themselves? (ie. like a superior OS we all love :)

    am i getting this wrong? 2 or 3 steps?

    and please don't flame for complaining about 2 or 3 steps b/c it's windoze so that probably means 4 or 5 reboots to get the crap installed.

    man i hate windoze....

    ugh..

    (and i'll take this back (a bit) if i'm truly doing something wrong).

    Cheers,

    you got that right. my pc is functional and does what i need for business stuff and email etc.. while my macs work, but when it goes..my oh my..i won't even look back for half a second.

    i did find a link to help with the updating.

    still ridiculous:

    You want to do a "Microsoft Update" rather than just the "Windows Update" which will include MS Office products.

    When you do a tools - "Windows Update" you will get a chance to make a "Microsoft Update" instead which will run each time from then on when it's time to do update.

    Hope this helps!

    It honestly seems like you're just picking stupid little reasons to validate your point that "MS BLOWS." Okay, so it takes a little bit more effort and isn't quite as intuitive. Well, for the most part, that has been fixed with Vista. Is this really worth a thread?

    then you have to raise the question, "was that really worth a post"

    :apple: for life

    yes it was bill b/c it allowed me to vent and more importantly, someone else posted a response to help sort the issue out.

    perfectly viable thread imho :)
