    Show me where, in any sort of contract, that MS is obligated to patch anything.

    ...public speaking sure isn't a job for everyone; For the majority of people it's more frightening than death.
    Yep, 'they' were very nervous. ;)

    Btw. I happen to respect Marion Marschalek. I like her, she's witty and imo 'far from boring'.

    May not be 'obligated' it's just their own published policy!

    Sure, they could change anything at any time they like and if they didn't giving anything about their reputation they would do that!

    Question at all times, if some reports didn't came from the Developer/Manufacturer (or the "Horses Mouth") is, are everything true what's written in such reports?! Personally I just don't believe that! But, even if a lot of bulls**t is some reports, there still true points!

    This is BS. These so-called "researchers" need to first demonstrate that what they uncovered are actual exploitable security flaws. Until they can do that, they are just grandstanding.

    Oh, and if they could demonstrate that these are actual exploitable flaws, they'd be collecting thousands in bug bounties from Microsoft. But they can't, so they do the next best thing: wave their hands and make noise.

    If anything Apple is becoming more MS (and MS Apple) in terms of support. Apple gave 7 year old iMacs an OS update for free and support their phones longer than anyone else (even if missing some features, better than nothing).

    MS on the other hand wants to choke 7 to prevent it from becoming XP and through massive half-assery did the whole 8.1 (still not enough for acceptance and the OS name is tarnished like Vista so nobody wants to give a second try) thing leaving people who are ignorant of 8.1 and on 8.0 (a lot given you have to get it in the App Store which most people have zero need to ever look at) screwed.

    MS is going to keep asking for do overs, leaving all their last tries left in the dust. If they release Windows 9 and it is a hit they will leave the few loyal enough to them to invest in 8.X as red-headed stepchildren (at least Vista died hard by never taking off and 7 becoming a hit).

    But you wrote this June 15, so 2 weeks ago was in...well, in May ?¿


    So, updates from May applied in.... May o_O


    Anyway, they want to move to their more frequent release schedule (I think that is fine, as long as Windows Server releases stay in more yearly time schemes), so, with Microsoft fame, why anyone think this is something rare?

    Why to do another Windows XP that does not die after more than 10 years? :D
