Microsoft: Windows Autopatch steals the 'fun' from Patch Tuesdays
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-windows-autopatch-steals-the-fun-from-patch-tuesdays/
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-it-pro-blog/windows-autopatch-faq/ba-p/3272081

I would hardly call Patch Tuesdays fun, more like a nightmare for some, when we find it breaks something.

Agreed, I'm quite sure they meant it ironic. ;)

The product isn't even directed at the average computer user or version.

I guess that MS won't be stopping there in the Patch Tuesday 'fun', I think it won't stop there. 

There has to be a reason why MS made this decision in the first place, if these reasons are valid for users, then it could be the next step.

https://www.bbc.com/news/business-61222470

I can't believe sums like this for something that isn't tangible.

How can he possibly recover this sum much less make a profit on it over and above the purchase price is beyond me.

He had stated that this was not about the money.

They you have to wonder why throw around 44 Billion $US
To turn it into what and given this area is constantly evolving with some newer players who no have greater numbers than Twitter.

It just doesn't make sense to me, but then again I have stayed away from all social networking from their inception.

Maybe to open up the platform to everyone just not those that agree with the current "correct philosophy"
It may just restore discussion instead of just pushing one ideology.
