Maybe companies like PMDG (knowing that some customers need to receive their updates on different ways) could improve their release timing. Had they just kept it until today, saying "Phew. Took longer" noone would have complained, I guess. We know PMDG refuses to stick to fixed timeframes, so why push out the update on late friday?
We've seen something similar with the MSFS sim update just before christmas: they published an update which led to a lot of problems for many users and then went about their (well deserved) holiday leaving the simmers without support.
