My biggest request for Windows 8 – Instant Updates

OK, so I am really pissed off now.

The more I write about Windows 8, the more I start to notice small things about Windows that can be improved.

In this case, I need to never see the image above again.

It seems like every other day I get this “all important” update that needs me to shut down and restart my PC.

The more you think about having to restart your PC even once a week or once a month, the more ridiculous it seems. We wouldn’t tolerate that with any other product we bought but for some reason, it makes sense when our Windows PC asks us to do it.

To be blunt, Microsoft developers, THIS HAS TO GO AWAY!

In all fairness, the reason we are asked to reboot is because there are certain PC processes (services) that we are told cant be updated while they are in use – I call that a problem.

Microsoft Developers, make this your problem! Fix it.

The next version of Windows should be able to release, repair/upgrade and restart processes in the background seamlessly. Truely big updates that require restarts should be at least 6 to 9 months apart.

I can’t be rebooting my PC every week or two weeks because a (yet another) flaw has been discovered.

My rant.. till then, here I go..I need to restart my PC, an update needs to install..
