Trying out the new Windows Update v6 (now called “Microsoft Update”). Cool that they’ve finally integrated Office Update and other products (SQL Server for instance).
A few observations, though:
- It took several ActiveX installs, plus closing and restarting IE for it to actually load fully.
- Windows Update has been slooow for me lately (before this version even). Dunno why, but it still is.
Update: same slowness on sparkling fresh XPSP2 and SBS 2003 installs. It ain’t me.
- Still a ton of French Spell Checker updates?? (2 for Office, 1 for Visio, 1 for Project) I saw this a lot with Office Update too. I have no French anything on any machines, so what’s the deal?.
About time to reboot…
