    Instead, sadly, I'm slowly but surely losing interest, the way computing seems to be headed.


    Wenda..
    Yea, I quite agree. I keep mine turned off, and every now and then I'll go in and see what's available. Last time was early February. I doubt that I'll bother with this so-called 8.1 update 1....... unless some very compelling reason presents itself.

    Waiting for 9, hoping for better...
    Not sure how good idea it is, not updating regularly. Threats are coming at much higher rates than it used to be few years ago. Win8 is also pretty new OS and can't be expected to have everything in the best shape from day one. Updates are now nicely arranged and almost painless to install even automatically. Until now, only 8.1 was a more of relatively major updates, newest ones are mostly cosmetic but with some security and usability gains. Whoever doesn't update to 8.1 and latest update coming will be missing a lot.

    Well, as the thread title states Windows 8.1 Update 1 is a Mandatory Update for Future Security Update Offerings. I guess it all comes down to whether you consider that compelling or not?
    I do not. I assume full responsibility for my system's security.
    Oh? So you must code then to keep your system safe? If so, that must take up a lot of your time.

    Sorry Rickkins, maybe he's right about language we from "colonies" talk and write in but that's part of us being Canadians and from "defacto" free country which we love without a need to bow to any queen or king and even less bound to use " queen's English".
    Once somebody starts being "grammar police", you can be sure he has lost his argument.

    Not really. Kind of off topic. It depends.
    When someone says "Microsoft have" I almost immediately go with Alt-F4.

    Proofreading is a skill the follows a set of defined rules.
    To successfully publish a document, it is usually reviewed by professionals that understand proper language.
    Otherwise, it is just slang. The use of slang for a technical presentation is telling.

    On topic, security updates are not necessarily needed in real time but if they make changes to the kernel,
    then there is probably an install sequence that is important.

    People post on forums to show different opinions and such, and to help others. then there are posters who just spread negativity. You are the later.

    Not everyone agrees but it should be kept somewhat friendly.

    You should uninstall 8 and go to 7 or whatever your choice is, and leave this forum.

    That is my opinion on you and your rudeness to other members here.

    Nice try Dude, but no sale. If ya had read a little bit more, you'd have surely noticed that the only time I get snarky is when replying to denigrating remarks. (I've just never been a turn the other cheek kinda guy)

    All other times I'm a sheer delight....

    Also, for most of us, or at least some of us, we've been debating the metro thing since the beginning and I like to think that even though we thoroughly disagree with the other side's position, we do for the most part respect each other.
