Thank you sir, may I have another?

In the scariest bit of news about Microsoft I've seen in quite some time, the Redmond monopoly announced thatWindows patches may become automatic. As in, "we'll just re-arrange your PC (or server) and won't bother to tell you."
Anyone who's had a PC for more than a year, and who has tried to keep it up to date, will tell you that patches are not a no-brainer. They are fraught with possibilities to do damage, either to the OS installation itself or to some other service or application running on it.

Just one question, Microsoft - when the patch blows up in my face, will you come out to my house and clean up the pieces?
