Also look for Flash update as they are on the same cycle as MS.

Where did that 739 number come from? I don't have nearly that many on my system.

When Windows 7 SP1 was released it included approximately 100 Updates and an additional 100 Hot Fixes. I haven't look lately but maybe another 100 since SP1.

There was a link in the ZDNet article.

More Microsoft milestones, commitments

Reller shared some additional Windows 8-related numbers during a meeting I had with her at Microsoft's New York City headquarters on Monday, May 6.

She said the Windows team has delivered 739 updates for Windows 8 and Windows RT in the six-plus months since those operating systems were made generally available. These updates have included everything from battery-life improvements, to drivers, to security fixes.

You are correct lehnerus2000; that is where I got the information. I don't know how true the statement is but I did read it in the article.

The 739 patches in six month seems a lot. If you do a search for Windows 8 patches at:

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin

The number does not even come close to 739. The combined number for important and critical patches, Windows 8 (32 and 64-bit) and Windows RT, is 62 patches.

While the search does not list optional patches, the chances are that the 739 includes patches for all other MS products running on Windows 8.
