does Microsoft ever bother to check any of the updates it puts out? other companies do their best to ensure their software and games are compatible and all Microsoft does is roar in, no thought for anything or anyone else and screw things up royally for everyone! it’s not only selfish and foolhardy, it’s irresponsible!! it wants and expects people to use Windows but it does nothing to instill any confidence in the system or Microsoft itself! what a way to treat customers!!
