Say Goodbye to Windows Service Packs

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Apparently, Microsoft is going to change the way that they release updates for their various products; instead of bundling several fixes in a single package, in many cases it will be left up to users to find and install fixes individually.

A service pack contains a number of patches, fixes and improvements for the software it has been released for. Microsoft up until now released service packs for many of its popular products including the Windows client and server operating system and Office. The service packs usually consists of patches that have already been available in one form or the other, with notable exceptions that are then released together with the service pack.
