IBM used to call their very first patches for OS/2 just "Fixpacks".

I still remember the buckts full of malice emptied over them : "Hey, they need patches ??? Bruahaha, Microsoft is a thousand times better because they DON'T need them !!!!!!!!!!" In this sense.

And then, later, only a few years later, Microsoft named their OS patches "servicepacks" …

Microsoft was always better at marketing than at anything else …

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
