You could choose to wait for the big one while some
could still benefit from the small ones.

I
was just going to type the same thing. On top of that each service pack needs
testing time before deployment. Fewer SP means getting some more time to test
them before deployment. Every patch they send out also has to be deployed
across the company user base. For a large company this can be quite a bit of
work. My IS department would kill me if we ran into the number of SP that SW
typically has. I wouldn't want the quick hotfix approach of heres a bug, fix
it and quickly throw out a patch.

This is not a red herring Dave. Exaggeration for effect possibly but not a
red herring.

Red Herring: a fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented in order to
divert attention from the original issue.

I was addressing a point in his argument. In my opinion it is not
acceptable for a SP to fix one issue and break another. I don't see how
that's irrelevant.

The march must be forward only. If that means only 1 or 2 big SPs then so
be it. These are my opinions. If you disagree that is your right. However
I'd get my fallacies straight before casting stones.

Dave I'm not sure why you are being so combative with me lately but I'm
going to do something I normally don't and let this one die. It's really
not worth arguing about.

(and don't take this a victory on your part, I don't think I proved your

My thinking is there is there would be a SMALL risk in the SP causing
problems. Yes, I would be willing to take a SMALL risk to get some of my
problems fixed sooner.
