Betteridge’s law of headlines in full effect. Alex Hern asks if it’s time to swap a Mercedes for a Lada. How surprising that, given Alex has the money to get a Mercedes, he doesn’t bother with the Lada in the end.
He could have saved a lot of time by reading this total horror story (worthy of Hewlett Packard Lovecraft) from Jack Schofield about “managing” windows updates. I’m not surprised that Windows is such a bad citizen, but compare to the situation to the major computing platforms of today (iOS and Android). Even at the height of the “there is not enough space to upgrade” iOS, the answer was straightforward.
Sliding towards irrelevance?
