Windows Annoyance #3263827

Who is the dick at Microsoft who decided to add the extra annoying reboot nag to the Automatic Updates? For those of you not using Windows XP, most of the time when you download the latest updates for the OS, the system needs a reboot. You are given a choice of "Reboot Now" or "Reboot Later."

Every programmer I personally know would code "Reboot Later" to mean "reboot whenever I'm done with whatever I happen to be in the middle of." Not Microsoft. To them, "Reboot Later" means "nag you every 10 fucking minutes until you reboot or go batshit insane." Nice.

Of course, I'm not the only one bothered by this. A web site has been created specifically to deal with this scourge. Thank you Internet.
