that doesn't make this okay.

I'm surprised there seem to be a lot of people who don't get this. Especially people who want to close holes with registry hacks - those are the sort of things that forced updates obliterate as security holes.

It's become very easy to shrug these things off. I admit I've done it before. It's hard to turn down a free OS, especially something akin to getting Win7 when it first came out. That's what Microsoft and companies alike are banking on - apathy.

I think those registry hacks are more placebos than anything else at this point.
