I had the hell of all

I had the hell of all problems with Win8. It would run itself - but not run any of my games, MMOs or interface with Firefox/Thunderbird. A chum went thru with me and we spent 30 hours [understating time, actually] to get everything working [including a bios reinstall] - and then the FIRST Win8 update broke it all again.
Back to Win7. Now I am eyeing Win10 with terrible, horrible suspicion.

Luckily, I was able to ID another 20 or 30 megabytes of Crap I never used and clear some space on the Hard Drive.
Then, I discovered that the Old version was at least 5 Megabytes Larger than the Update because that's how much Freespace I gained when it finished the entire install.

Everyone Swore that M$ Never issued Updates that were Smaller than the previous package.
They all swore I had to be Lying about gaining freespace.

I'm going to assume this is based upon the Windows 10 installer, because the day before this comic went live, I was downloading a Windows 10 ISO and the error message when it failed was "Something happened (something happened)."

So if this wasn't based on the Windows 10 error message, you need to stop mentioning your ideas for comics in front of your Xbox or whatever. :-)
