The only thing I can't figure out is the logic of featuring this update, which dates from December 8, according to the KB article, on the very same day when SP1 appears and updates a myriad of files to versions newer than this.

Microsoft clumsiness™.

Not really. Microsoft continously updates the OS, this is just something that didn't make it into the SP. It happens; won't be the last.

Just installed it a few minutes ago and glad to report, the PC is now much faster system-wide. Internet Browsing, and general Windows Explorer usage has improved for me. Unfortunately, my boot-time suffered by a few extra seconds, but once Windows is loaded, it is nice and nippy.

You're not thinking clearly. This update will never make it, it updates files to versions lower than SP1 versions, it has been rendered obsolete on the very same day they promoted it to feature in WU.

Installation was a breeze over here too, thank God.

However, I find it hilarious that it takes ONE HOUR to download over a 35mbps connection, and yet only ten minutes to actually configure, install and then boot up. Honestly, I think Microsoft needs some better WU servers STAT!

To be fair, they probably had a lot of traffic. Also, it probably verified the file was intact as it downloaded (so it could be their algorithm for transferring the data).

It was slow for me downloading over cable internet.

I know, was just commenting it as funny that a roughly 88MB file took that long over such stellar broadband, to lighten the mood as it were.
