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.

I disagree. Actually, most general users do care what gets installed on their computers, they just have a lot of trouble determining what is or isn't valid and/or expressing what exactly they want. I've worked on thousands of computers running Windows, OS X, and Linux and most consumers may not be able to clearly express why or what happens to their computers when there's a problem but awareness of Microsoft's putting profit and control over providing their customers with a quality product/experience is well-known. These aren't ignorant people as you infer, they have skills and expertise in areas outside computer stuff. As for your very, very outdated 95% market share reference, I simply feel guilty for feeding yet another troll with this comment.
