Personally, I think that adding or removing features in a SP only increases the odds of breaking something. SPs are supposed to be safe and fix bugs, not introduce a whole new set of problems - that's reserved for major versions.


I agree. And as much as I'd like these features to be downloadable add-ons, I know some of them would result in extra branches of code (with patches for those branches), which would make development a nightmare.


Also, it's not really in Microsoft's interests. The more reasons they can give for people to upgrade (often re-buying licenses), the better.

Just looking in a minute, while stopping to grab a donut. I feel compelled to ask this water-cooler question. Have the posted questions continued to get worse over time?

Nah, once a question is posted, it stays about the same.

I tried to answer this by looking in the tbl_question_quality_table table, but there's no date column. How do I order it by the oldest records first?

Actually some of them do actually get worse when rereading them.

Have they gotten worse or have you gotten better?

Definitely the questions getting worse...there is little to no chance for me.

That depends on which inertial frame you are observing the system from.
