New Update policy for Windows Server 2008

Recommended Posts

- Currently, Microsoft follows the socalled "Monthly Rollup Update" policy for Windows 7 and Windows 8. This policy was introduced in the 2nd half of 2016.

- But now Microsoft is moving to a similar policy for Windows Server 2008 SP 2 as well. See the web-article below, dated june 12, 2018.

(Is MS going to follow a similar policy for the Server version of Windows 8 ?? What's the name of that version ? Win Server 2012 ??)

 

- My personal opinion is and remains that MS should issue a new Service Pack for Win 7, Win 8 and Win Server 2008. (MS DID issue a second Service Pack for Windows Server 2008 (SP2).) After that MS then can start issueing "Cumulative (Security) Updates" each month.  It would make the Windows update procedure/make life for MS and the users of Windows much much easier.

and

A security monthly quality rollup

  • A single update containing all new security fixes for that month (the same ones included in the security only update released at the same time), as well as fixes from all previous monthly rollups.  This can also be called the “monthly rollup.”
