This has gone too far.

My family has at least two computers per capita, and we are all heartily sick of downloading new Adobe Flash versions, Windows updates, silly Firefox upgrades, useless Java replacements, etc.

How much time do we have to waste because software providers can't get it (approximately) right the first time?

Apple is able to make Mac OS X work without multiple updates per week. Same is true of Linux.
