Not at all. A long time ago in a house far, far away (the other side of town)...

At one time I used a popular CD authoring application that issued patches frequently. Yes, patches. The patches were cumulative and if one of them borked you had to uninstall the whole mess, clean up your disk and registry by hand, and start from scratch.

I finally gave up and spent the money on the 2nd-rated authoring application.
Software Zen: delete this;
