    Acronis: Yes - awesome when its working, hellish if something goes wrong.
    Unity: agreed.
    Flash: Yes, yes, yes! Hopefully it will die soon.
    Regarding AV i do not agree with this: "Some business-class antivirus tools actually work — Symantec Endpoint Protection is one" - I am not a fan.

    I think Adobe in general can be added. Acrobat is a pain and has plentiful updates, despite supposedly being software designed for a format meant to be completely secure, at least until the feature creep kicked in. Flash is obviously a pain. AIR and Shockwave similarly afflicted. Acrobat Pro occasionally decides that the installation source is corrupted forcing me to repatch/rebuild the MSIs. Creative Suite has many well known shenanigans. Just... such PITA
