Windows 10 Education 64 bit

I just had a look at my list of installed updates and noticed the first one listed way down at the bottom under Microsoft Windows is (KB976902) installed on 11/20/2010? My install was done on 2/5/2011.
It was a clean install with integrated media, Windows 7 + SP1 x64 Home Premium. Anybody else seeing this update with that date?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Better Memory Usage Since the SP1 Patch Install

However I also installed two other updates today

1. ATI Radeon HD 4200 driver from MSFT Windows Update
2. Avast AIS

So I am not sure which update is giving my computers the better memory usage but I will take it and enjoy it.

I disagree. If you understand the idea behind probability, then you should be able to comprehend the nearly infinitesimal chances of discovering a bug in software. What matters more is the response time to address the bug once it's discovered and time to implement a solution.

Compared to Apple with OSX, Microsoft is doing an excellent job with posting updates very quickly.

Windows 7

No software is fault-free. I run Ubuntu on one of mine and I am constantly receiving fixes and updates for vulnerabilities.

Actually, after hearing all the hype about how wonderful and secure Linux code was compared to Microsoft "Winblows," I have been amazed at how many and how frequently these "fixes" appear.

Maybe the high profile of Windows vulnerabilities has far more to do with the size of its userbase than it does to poor programming.

I suspect that if Unix systems controlled 90% of the user market and Windows 3%, everyone would be whining about how p*** poor Unix was and "Why don't they make a system like Windows that doesn't get hacked nearly as often."

Windows Vista Ultimate x64
Wow, I am so overwhelmed by Win 7

Last year I decided to build myself another computer with everything based on 64 platform. Subsequently I installed Vista 64 Ultimate and gave the old computer to my young daughter w/ it running XP Pro. Because I was running Vista I opted last month to upgrade her OS to Win7. Because of certain feaures I decided I wanted (mainly to run XP programs under Win 7) I had to do a clean install of Win7 Ultimate. Everything went fine and she has been using it for over a month while I con't to reinstall programs. One of the main reasons I wanted to run under XP was for Acronis Backup 8; that in itself is another story as I can no longer download it from Acronis and the only copy I have is the recover CD copy; but anyways today I did a manual check for windows update. Lo and Behold, it says that SP1 is availible, evan tho it supposedly checked yesterday automatically. Anyways, after 1 and 1/2 hrs later and two previous failed attempts to download and install it, it finally says that it rebooting and configuring from the SP1 install. as I am on DSL,
have to be amazed at such speed from them for their updates; yes sarcasim at the highest level; as other programs do their updates in seconds. While typing it finally has come back up and SP1 is installed. Damn this is like going back to dialup. See that there is still 3 more updates availible, while they say that they are optional I would consider them to be necassary.
Got to love MS and their approach to doing business.
