They are always there from the beginning why else would we need patches? Tell me one OS which was released with no security holes and then got one because of an unnecessary patch.

No OS is secure if it can be accessed by humans.

Unless if you're using a 1980's DOS that has virtually no support today.

Since you didn't bother to read the article before posting, I'll repeat the critical information you missed.

"Scheduled for a release on Tuesday, the patches will also affect the other current versions of Windows, including XP, Vista, and Windows 7, in addition to Server 2003 and 2008."

The best patch for Desktop users of windows 8 is a disk with windows 7 on it! Just patch directly over that crappy Metro/Modern adware/crapware infested OS!

This is just regular monthly MS security updates! I can't believe there's a news article on this. Oh wait it's Zak Islam. He's new to computers. Zak: It's called Patch Tuesday. Punch "Patch Tuesday" in your browser and hit enter. We don't need a news article every time there's a regular security patch.

The worst part is the headline. You make it sound like ONLY Windows 8/RT/IE10 are getting patched, when in fact it applies to all currently supported versions of both Windows and IE! On top of that the headline doesn't say anything about security. This combination makes it sound like some special emergency patch for Win8/RT and IE10. Which it is not.

Either way, stop with the damn trolling already. Its getting real old... :sarcastic:

Darkerson,

M$ needs to give downgrade rights to new PC buyers and not just downgrade rights to enterprise users! So until M$ stops its monopolistic power grab on PCs it does not directly Brand, The truth will be told!
If I purchase a third party built PC, I have the right not to have M$ app store adware/crapware Metro/Modern runtime tacked on to my OS! Apple does not force its closed ecosystem on any hardware it dos not make, so why should it be allright for M$ do do so!

I'm starting to think he's an Apple employee.

I'm a Type 1 hypervisor fanboy! the only software I want on my PC is a Type 1 hypervisor that can run any OS! I'll take my OS in a tall glass of VM, and the only thing touching the Bare Metal of my PC iron, will be a Type 1 hypervisor!

EXACTLY. You know the funny thing? After the first Patch Tuesday he "reported" on, i wondered in the comments, "Are we going to see this article every month or what?".

Looks like we are :lol:

Or, you know, you could just use the desktop and not use the appstore. Wow, such a hard concept.

Win8 haters have to pretend that everyone within shouting distance is an idiot, or they'll get nothing done.

Could someone PLEASE ban the guy that keeps on changing his post name as it 'seems' that there's lots of negative posts but it's all from the SAME person. Pretty much. It gets VERY annoying.

Darkerson, I need to be able to have more than two windows open at the same time, I useally have 4 windows open and I am viewing them at the same time for graphics projects! Win 8 will only allow 2 windows to be opened at a time, and no resizing! I need a task bar visable at all times beacuse I am useally running a rendering application, so I need to be able to switch to that task quickly, and I also have about 3 folder windows open to the directory where the rendered frames from the rendering application are spooling, I view these results to see if I need to stop rendering and adjust settings, then sart the rendering over again! So the Desktop in windows 8 has been stripped of to many of the productive aspects of windows 7! I intend to Stay with windows 7, but I need to be able to obtain New Hardware with windows 7 installed! We all Know that it is M$ intent to force its closed ecosystem App Store OS on us all, but the currend M$ management will fail! People need to be productive with their computers! And You can bet your life savings That I am not the Only WIN 8 hater out there!

What are you talking about? I just opened up about 20 windows on my desktop (Win 8) without any problems. I can open as many File Management windows as I like by clicking on File New Window and I can have as many program windows open as I like including dragging tabs from Chrome into new windows. If there is an App that intrudes when trying to say watch a video then uninstall the app in question by right clicking on the Metro interface to access the apps available and the default desktop program will take over as the default.
