Easy - Sun OS, Solaris, HPUX, AIX, OpenVMS. They did not push arbitrary updates under the guise of "security" - meaning oh crap, we wrote more bugs. And we want you to have the latest advertisements.

So, somehow Microsoft managed to push out software for users that don't even use the hardware. I wonder what else is being pushed out under the guise of page after page of user agreements.

Has never been more appropriate.
