[McIDAS #JAV-781741]: McIDAS-X on Windows or Linux



Hi Kway,

re:
> How often do you get interrupted by Windows 7 updates?

Microsoft makes Windows updates once per month, so once per month
is typical.  There are occasions where patches to a critical bug
are made more frequently, but this is not common.

re:

I think that the update cycle is the same for all versions of Windows.

I shut down my machine every day.  When I start it back up, a package
that I run to let me know when Windows things (OS, programs, etc.) need
to be updated.  The (free) package that I am running is:

Secunia PSI

Given that Windows is the favorite target of hackers, it is supremely
important that one keeps all Windows applications and the OS updated.
My experience is that this takes time, but it is small in comparison
to the amount of time I spend in my CentOS VM doing McIDAS development,
answering support, etc.

Cheers,

Tom
