Microsoft officials said late on June 27 that the new update experience — with clearer “upgrade now, schedule a time, or decline the free offer” – will start rolling out this week. Microsoft will also revert to making clicking on the red X at the corner of the Windows 10 update box dismiss the update, rather than initiate it, as it has done for the past several weeks.
If you had told me only a few months ago that Microsoft would be putting out a press statement extolling how it made sure that the close button on a window frame actually closed the window instead of initiating something crappy people don’t want, I’d have called you crazy.
Why do we let software makers get away with producing crap? Why does software suck so much?
