An update system with an idiotic approach.

Let me introduce you an update approach for disturbing your users, make them suffer and increase potential murder count in your userbase:

1. Make the updates hidden.
2. Require registration for updates. Who cares public usage?
3. Use InstallAware for your software and update distribution platform.
4. Expect all of your users to have broadband internet connection.
5. Force your users to redownload 500 mb’s of update everytime with a new installation. Yes, there are no computers in this world which are part of a development team, and there is nothing called as a network installation.

If a huge company like Embarcadero (CodeGear?) follows this approach, probably it is a right thing, and you should follow them too.

Do anything you want, but stay away from me.
