​Windows 7 and 8 users …

Good news…

Getting Updates...

For Windows 7 and Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 users life has been getting worse as Microsoft gradually morphed them ever more into Windows 10. Forced updates may be over, but commercially they have since been killed offand there’s added telemetry tracking. But Microsoft is now about to fix one of their biggest Windows 10-inspired flaws: it’s time to wave goodbye to the ‘patchocalypse’…

Posting under the catchy headline ‘Update to Supersedence Behaviour for Security Only and Security Monthly Quality Rollup Updates’, Microsoft field engineer Scott Breen says the patchocalypse (which created huge Windows 7 and Windows 8 update sizes) is no more.

Breen spells out the benefits as Windows 7 and Windows 8 users as now being able to:

  • Selectively install Security Only updates at any time
  • Periodically deploy the Security Monthly Quality Rollup and only deploy the Security Only updates since then, and;
  • More easily monitor software update compliance using Configuration Manager or WSUS.
