I am really starting to think Microsoft has lost its grip on their updates. What used to be a fairly ordered process seems to have degenerated over the last few year into a very hit-or-miss affair, with mixed messaging, rollbacks and the like. The latest clusterfizzle is just kinda sad.
Earlier this month, Microsoft gave the world .NET Framework 4.7 and urged users to install it for the usual reasons: more fun bits to play with and a security improvements.
But two days later the company urged Exchange users not to install it ASAP, because it hadn't validated it yet. Last Friday - 10 days after the launch of the new code - it reminded users of Lync and Skype for Business not to install it either.The Register
