Yes, Win­dows still crashes

The Week (US) - - News 19 -

Bugs are creep­ing back into Mi­crosoft Win­dows, said Tom War­ren in Mi­crosoft pulled its lat­est Win­dows 10 up­date last week af­ter users com­plained the op­er­at­ing sys­tem was delet­ing their doc­u­ments. Mi­crosoft has a his­tory of prob­lem­atic sys­tem up­grades but tried to do bet­ter by “lis­ten­ing to its cus­tomers af­ter the Win­dows 8 dis­as­ter.” The com­pany has opened up test ver­sions of its pro­grams to mil­lions of users, but still seems to be miss­ing prob­lems: Mi­crosoft had to de­lay last April’s Win­dows 10 up­date af­ter find­ing it could cause the dreaded “blue screen of death,” a to­tal op­er­at­ing-sys­tem freeze. Mi­crosoft hasn’t re­vealed how the dele­tion er­ror got into the most re­cent up­date, and “it’s un­likely the com­pany ever will.”
