May Windows and Office patches are now relatively stable,
but Win7 NIC problems persist
If you’ve been holding off on installing the May Windows and Office patches, now’s a good time to release the kraken and get them installed. Just be aware that there are still acknowledged, unresolved problems with Win7 updates breaking network cards.
At least the really bad bugs, introduced by “security” patches earlier this month, have been fixed. The problems that remain reside in the dregs — not likely to bite, but worth knowing about in case something suddenly goes bump in the night.
And if you’re using Win10 1803, you should definitely ask Microsoft for an increase in combat-duty pay.
