Are users still suffering from the "battery drain" issue? How long has it been since Myce posted about that issue? Four months, give or take? If this issue hasn't been fixed yet, I can only assume that Microsoft cares more about finding new ways of implementing malware than making reliable software.
That said, bugs will happen. Every piece of software ever written will always have bugs, especially complex programs such as an entire operating system. But, for such a high-profile bug to remain unfixed is nothing short of embarrassing, especially given the points Xercus pointed out above.
Of course, I don't know that the bug hasn't been fixed, although it sounds like that's the case from this article. Maybe it has been fixed. If so, that makes this entire rant a moot point.
