I was not aware that MS had made statements like these before this update was released. On top of that, I applied all the updates to the three Win 7 machines in my control and wasn't even aware there was a problem until I came across references to it in the literature one or two days later !
I think the reason it was released even though flawed was because it did fix some critical flaws. The warnings allowed SysAdmins to test it before applying it across their full stock of machines. I agree, this was unfortunate for private users who do not take the opportunity to read MS tech bulletins but, as far as I know, only a small percentage of computers were affected. MS may have seen this as an acceptable risk given the importance of the flaws it was aimed at.
Again, as I understand it, the problems it caused - when it caused them - were fairly easily resolved unlike the update of about a year and a half ago which completely bricked one or two models of Samsung computers and one other manufacturer's and had no effect on any other.
