Spoiler

 

 

What do you think of this 'update'?

In the comments box at the bottom of the update info page, I told them that I would not be DOWNgrading to Win8, so no thanks.  :)

Good to see that there are still people who can read  :hello:, as conspiracy seems to be the only subject since weeks on this forum. :boring:

Well, without ANY conspiracy approach, you will have to admit that:

Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7

This update helps Microsoft make improvements to the current operating system in order to ease the upgrade experience to the latest version of Windows.

 

and the "tagging" of it as "Update type: Recommended"

could have been better rendered as:

Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7

This update fixes a number of possible errors in the procedure of upgrading a currently running Windows 7 SP1 to Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, there is no need whatever to install this update if you are not updating to Windows 8 or Windows 8.1

and tagged as "Update type: Unneeded for normal functioning of the OS".

 

"make improvements to the current operating system in order to ease the upgrade experience" :w00t:

Let's call things with their names:

"preventively fix possible errors during the upgrade"

 

Gotta go, I have to "ease my wife's driving experience in the morning" <- I must replace her car battery because it does not start if it's cold in the morning :whistle:.

Good to see that there are still people who can read  :hello: ...

 

Why do I read that this is an 'important' 'update'?

 

Which intelligent, literate lifeform would want to voluntarily downgrade from Se7en to Tiles 8.xyz? :hello:
