Typical.

I love this statement:
"...Kandek said he expects Microsoft to push out an update to address the issue within two to three weeks."
Translation: For the next few weeks, people are left vulnerable.

I use MS software because it's dictated by my profession, but I'm increasingly appalled and alarmed by the lack of quality in their products.

I am very grateful of the fact that Microsoft does not build airplanes.
