this will sound so hilarious and stupid
but in last 4 weeks, YES 1 full month, i have been screwing around with win7 sp1 installation
doing various experiments, and all I see how i wasted 1 month of life on microslops idiotism
oh holy spirits i hate them so much...
but let this topic be about notorious winsxs folder, which is retarded beyond retarded
its main function was to "resolve dll hell", so when each app gets compiled under different
visual studio or ex visual basic, the folder would aggregate same DLL but only if it has small change
something like VCpp 2010 rtm, then sp1, then patch for sp1, then patch for patch lol
or even if you look at VB 6, it had 6 service packs...
BUT when I saw that this s*** folder contains 3-4 same SYSTEM files
ok, read again, SYSTEM files, not files that came with program, but SYSTEM files
just different build number, i had to ask myself WHY, isn't it enough to have it in \System32 folder locked ?
why the F'ck have it tripled or quadrupled into SxS for no freaking reason, and this is just 32bit version
who knows what x64 has ...
so yeah I did next logical step, I extracted from install WIM whole dammned SxS
and compared its files with those in System32, what would one call duplicate files
and just for safety I left ones with highest build number/newer date
tho i was tempted to nuke them all since they already are in System32 folder,
and voila upon repack stupid OS didn't wan't to load some dll's even if they were there
thank you MS for f*** up
i bet even those idiots don't know what they did there
