Microsoft: No More Pick-and-Choose Patching

I know you guys are going to have a lot to say about this, so I am going to just post this link and back away very slowly. The good news is that Microsoft never issues faulty updates so you wont have to worry about ever having to uninstall a patch bundle because one patch in the update was bad. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Starting this month, home and business Windows users will no longer be able to pick and choose which updates to install and which to leave for another time. For example, I’ve often advised home users to hold off on installing .NET updates until all other patches for the month are applied آ— reasoning that .NET updates are very large and in my experience have frequently been found to be the source of problems when applying huge numbers of patches simultaneously.
