Microsoft It's late here, but we're having election night, and the two leading parties are currently tied seat-wise, with a 10000-vote difference. Anyway, it gives me some time to cover a major problem: Microsoft is at it again. The company has pushed an update through Windows Update which silently, without user consent, installs two browser extensions - one for Internet Explorer, and one for Firefox.

Most users don't care!

Fact ist that most users don't care what is installed on their PCs. Actually they're even thankful that MS installs extensions they would install anyway. And exactly these "most users" is MS's target market. What MS does is, to fulfill its target market's wishes. It's that simple. Of course there are also unhappy users but it's always a trade-off: 5% of the target market vs. 95%.
