Microsoft's been doing Operating Systems how long? And yet, they still don't have an update mechanism that actually works. 🤦

@PhoneBoy that's debatable. They bought DOS. They bought Xenix. They hired a veteran to do NT kernel... though i think they actually did OS/2 (1.0)

MS has been financing the development of operating systems for a long time. It's even tried a few of its own, but found none worthy of customers. :-)

@jeremiah If this weren't my daughter's computer, I'd flatten it and start over.

@PhoneBoy @jeremiah FOSS folk somehow manage to get updates to work well (pacman, dnf, pkg_add, et alia) working on donations (and a bit of industry cash). It puzzles me why MS can’t seem to get it just a little bit right with all their capital.
