Microsoft: Now Using Client Platform Dominance to Make Random Server Applications Arbitrarily Unusable!™

The cause of last week's Skype outage unmasked:
According to Skype the outage was caused by “a massive restart of our user’s [sic] computers across the globe within a very short timeframe as they re-booted after receiving a routine software update” which The Register points out was Microsoft’s monthly patch Tuesday. Patch Tuesday is the time of the month Windows users receive security updates that often result in widespread reboots by Thursday.

Awesome. Again.
