Windows 7: Windows Update

Windows Update

Do you guys get any Windows updates on W7? I haven't seen an update for weeks...Just a few driver updates in the beginning and M$ Silverlight ... Could there be not even one more update so long? hard to believe for M$.

I think I read somewhere that unless you install a particular application or framework, you'll be downloading Vista updates, not W7 updates...

Does this happen indeed?

Does it need to be activated for update to work? With the public beta tomorrow maybe update will start working.
