Windows 7: When did you last update your other OS

19 May 2009   #1

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu
When did you last update your other OS

A lot of us here are dual booting but with Seven being such a great OS just wondered are you neglecting the Other OS?

Have just booted into my Vista for the first time in a while, (apart from on quick boot to check an issue, now and again ), and I realised that I had not done an update since 16th March 2009 which means over two months of outdated protection

Will stay on Vista for an hour or two to load all the updates but was surprised how long it's been and will always treat the other OS in a dual boot as a new unpatched install in future

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

I always make a point of booting into my other OSes at least once a week, if only to update the OS and AV software.

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

LOL, maybe once a month now. I usually run it as a virtual machine now from within Windows 7.

Windows is the OS on my machine.

All others are just Virtual machines.

only OS on my laptop as well, and the only machine that is currently running 7 in my house is about to be running 7 as of this weekend.

And I haven't updated much of anything that is not 7 related since before March 15, as that was my birthday.....

W 7 64-bit Ultimate

I'm in Vista every other day or so and XP about once a week, just to make sure XP is still working, XP isn't so bad with IE8 installed.

The last time I used Vista, I got a BSOD. I updated Vista today as well as installing the new cat drivers and I got another bloody BSOD.

The irony is that when Seven was a BSOD fest for me, Vista was rock solid stable. Now Seven is rock solid stable while Vista is crashing on me. I can't win
