I prefer periodic updates for any software I use, it shows that they care and are constantly working on fixing anything! I am having big problems though, this VLC will not install, I might try and restart my computer.

I think VLC should stick to a schedule and release updates only once in X months. Each time with lots of updates.

It is a pain to constantly update these software.
Others in the list: Notepad++, Pidgin, CCleaner, ImgBurn (though not as frequent as the others)

no it's not.

Yes it is.

Why can't it update automatically, instead of my having to choose were i want to save the file and then having to uninstall before the new versions is installed??

Could be alot easier.

Windows is just begging for a package manager. In Ubuntu and most other Linux distros, the majority of your software gets tested and released by the OS vendor through the package manager, which works kind of like Windows Update, but for everything. Many Linux software makers run their own repositories for Ubuntu so you can add them to your package manager as a place to check for updates to that particular software. Then when your computer checks for updates, it updates everything all at once, saving you the trouble of opening each program one by one and manually checking for updates. Windows has been needing something like this for the longest time. Isn't Apple's store supposed to be coming to OSX to do something like this?

Short of windows getting a proper package manager, I think background/seamless updates (such as chrome etc has) would be the next best thing. If not that even just a slightly more streamlined process would be nice for a lot of the apps ("update now" rather than "save file as"). So i'd have to agree with Alphanumeric that the current way of downloading, saving, uninstalling, reinstalling etc for each update is kinda annoying "/

Don't upgrade then... That's all. Wait fro VLC to hit whatever version you want and update then. There, easy to fix.
