  1. Only Microsoft could manage such a feat

    And to add to the fun, some people can’t even install the fix.

    The complexity of Windows has got to the point where every new little update
    to fix one bug runs the real risk of creating another one. Looks like we’re
    starting to see this sort of thing happen every few months.

    I suppose that's what happens when you write software with one of the goals being deliberately
    creating incompatibilities with earlier versions of the same software.

    Its really quite a nice comeuppance.
