    If you manage 50,000 (or 150,000) desktops in a business, you probably are very reluctant to accept any changes other than critical fixes (which you still spend time reviewing and testing on your own before you deploy to all those machines).

    I'm not in the habit of lying or being deceptive, Doug. I meant it when I said that updates to Windows do not usually include changes in functionality because of the associated risks and costs for many of our customers.
