I can write some elegant code (simple and it works). Other times, it be something to wash off your shoe. I have this vision of MS full of smart people, but I want the 2x4 to whack the Windows 7 and Windows 10 upgrade folks. I'll provide nails for the 2x4.
Daughter nukes her laptop ("os not found"), claims she did nothing. Hmm, right, okay no evidence, there there hug. Clearly there is an issue with her SSD.
Install Windows 7 with SP1, prepare for inevitable 24 hour "checking for updates" wait. And wait. Now, I know that there is probably some complicated "check for recursive upgrade links" going on, but wtf, I was taught this 36 years ago - simplify life. What prevents the Windows 7 SP1 to leave a marker file indicating ALL of the updates are needed? 48 hours and it comes back as "no updates found" <hysterical laugh>.
Daughter wants Windows 10 - find a link for 7->10 upgrade still working... Laptop 36+ hours "download" or "getting ready" for a clean install.
Seems I won't starve as a developer any time soon. What a steaming pile of elephant dung.
