Internet Explorer As it turns out, Google's idea of silently and automatically updating web browsers for security's sake is actually a pretty darn good idea - Chrome is pretty much always up-to-date. Microsoft agrees with this, and has announced it's going to automatically update Internet Explorer on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

You obviously don't work for a company whose entire business process works through an online app written for IE 6. I am a Linux user myself, so I don't care personally. But this is just stupid. Microsoft is going to break a lot of peoples system doing this. And they were the ones who insisted on doing things their own way back then. Its their fault that there is all the fragmentation. Now you are just going to have to turn off updates altogether which isn't good for anyone.
