      The other day I did a Windows 10 patching podcast with Karl Palachuk on the SMB community podcast.  It was fun!  (Now I know how Mary Jo Foley feels e

      In spite of some passing Windows 7 unflattering comments  (Oh, Dear!) and a concentration on Windows 10 patching, I found enough in the podcast to make it rather useful and a good way to spend half an hour listening to Susan and her interviewer. Particularly informative to me, the discussion on 0-day updates vs. phishing and which one is the thing to watch out for most, these days. (If you, gentle reader, wanted to know which one is that one, then go listen to Susan’s interview’s Podcast.)

        Yeah, the chatter about windows 7 i found to be mostly a load of old nonsense. There’s a reason why it still has a huge user base and it’s simply because it just works and is stable, we don’t want to be microsoft’s eternal beta testers and have a firehose of telemetry being pumped to redmond. How many times are we going to excuse microsoft for borking machines or randomly deleting files due to these feature updates? They’re getting desperate now, windows 10 adoption has fallen so far below their expectations that they have resorted to being a malware vendor to force it on to people’s machines and that talk about windows update being incredibly slow? That was all down to them, it never used to be like that before 10 came out.

        But other than that there was some good advice!

          In the cold light of day i can see i come across as really snarky and disrespectful in this post (god knows the internet could do with a lot less of that) but of course i have massive respect for the work Susan puts into the mental torture that is the windows monthly patching cycle. Though i stand by the point i was making, it’s just healthy disagreement that’s all.

      Thank you Susan. Even though I have been following Patch Watch for several years, I found it useful to pull it all together. It was particularly useful for me at the moment, since I am in the process of moving from Win 7 to Win 10 as I buy new PCs.
