Vista has installed two updates in the last two days. The updates sometimes take a moment and don't require a restart. Other times, they take a long time to download, install, and then require a long restart. This eats up lots of my time. I wish they could bundle them so I don't see them two days in a row. They don't often happen back to back, but my laptop's update history shows it happens once in a while.
Generally, I believe the updates are important for security reasons. That's why I don't delay installing them unless I'm in the middle of something.
After each update, I look at the update history to see what's been installed. Today, I counted the updates that have been installed through 2009.
Guess how many?
How did you guess?
66. That's right, I saw 66 packages of updates last year. Many of the updates contained several smaller updates (sub-updates?).
Disclaimer: I use the computer my employer provided and it has Vista installed. They were going to upgrade to Windows 7, but they might be purchasing new computers. I guess that's what prevented us from upgrading.
