Root747142yAs a former sysadmin and domain admin, this sounds about right.
Users are utter morons who see their devices as, not their tools, but as someone else's overly-confusing tools they don't have to learn or care about.
@maushax Of course, clients USE your code and/or services
xalys20252yHave my +1 for using UrBackup :D

Putting windows on military shit means that microsoft can shut down whole military operations by just releasing updates...
@Gregozor2121 Updates were one of my many unofficial duties there, as sysadmin. I had a second Windows 2012 R2 server installed to my laptop via VirtualBox (my laptop runs linux) and a test VM with Windows 10 Pro. I tested the batch of updates on that before uploading them to the main server.
It was an extra unpaid 1-4 hours each week, just to ensure that the updates were safe. My main problem was that, with those updates I also uploaded the virus definitions for Windows Defender. That was the reason I was so furious about them not updating.
Once I left, they shut off most of the services and security policies. I just wait until the next inspection. Then... popcorn time! (yes, I am a vengeful guy when it comes to things I warned and was ignored)
