A recent update from M$ is causing BSODs on the re-re-reboot. Sigh. They have made their system so complex even they cannot fix it. It seems like they want you to use GNU/Linux where the modularity of the package management systems and clear rules about what files a package can affect make it much less likely that such problems could occur and if they should happen, the problems can be fixed quickly and transparently. When you try to obfuscate your code, you become the bottleneck.
Use Debian GNU/Linux to escape this mess, particularly if you are running a second-class OS from M$, XP or a netbook. Do you really want to wait until your OEM gets the fix from M$ and finds a way to get it to you for your netbook? Don’t be a second class user of a PC. Go first class with GNU/Linux.
We know how it works. M$’s biggest competitor is XP. They need you to pay for a new release to keep the cash coming in. All is fair in their world, including making life difficult for those who cling to XP. When you get fed up with XP, get off the treadmill. Go to the light. Go to GNU/Linux. see http://www.debian.org.
