Microsofts stupid windows update as ISO’s idea

Security And Critical Updates Available On CD Image FilesMicrosoft now releases ISO-9660 CD image files that contain all the security and critical updates that are released on the Microsoft Windows Update Web site for Windows and for other Microsoft products.

This just seems like a near pointless PR stunt. The only time I could see this being useful is if your Darren and are downloading files over a 14.4k internet connection.

If your involved in updating the windows machines in a “large multinational organization” and don’t have your own internal windows update server, I think Microsoft should be handing you one of those “how to write your resume” cd’s instead of all the updates on an ISO.

    OK, that was uncalled for, I’ve got DSL now (all it took was a cross country move).
