I was downloading an update to MS Sql the other day and the file was named exactly the same as the prior version. I was quite confused and could not even check if it was a later version until I double-clicked the installer.
Not sure what is stopping them from appending a version number to their filenames.
This made me think of all the times I've downloaded this or that paper from somebody's website, and I've ended up downloading a(nother) file called "paper.pdf"... though, just to annoy me, now that I actually try to make the point, at the moment my downloads folder has exactly 0 files called paper.pdf...
It's not the end of the world, just a minor annoyance, of a type I'd seen before, that (having 5 free minutes while in the middle of something) I felt moved to comment on.
