RantMicrosoft WTF are you doing! PinprofessionalMycroft Holmes17-Aug-14 19:42 
I just got a Silverlight updater turn up on my machine offering to update my plug in. As I am under the impression some dumb bastard has castrated my development platform by withdrawing support for this platform I decided to investigate via the Learn more about this update.
It takes me to a website [^]telling me it is going to update my version to 4.0.60531.0. and was released some time in 2011.
The scary thing is that my user base may attempt to do this, while most do not have admin rights there are a few who this will probably screw up their system if they apply the upgrade. I predict the minions are going to be pissed with MS over the next few days.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
