Another update on the MS updates!

If you'll notice, people who were visiting the usual Windows Update site got v5; the only people who got v6 are the people who visited the new domain that me and Tarun talked about.. I believe that v6 wasn't fully public until now. Maybe I'm wrong. I dunno. But it seems all the kinks were worked out.

They are upgrading it to support future operating systems, and better support current ones. It makes it easier for them not only for managing the back-end, but the front-end (the part the user sees)

 

v4 and below was Win9x, v5 was XP, and v6 is XP+.

Bump -- realized two more new things about v6:

* The main reason they came out with v6 is Microsoft Office update integration - now Windows Update can send you Office Updates (this was glanced upon before, but not explicitly stated)

* Apparently the ActiveX control now has the ability to disable the ability to uncheck certain seriously critical items when the modal window comes up about new updates (such as Windows installer 3.1... the checkmark was grayed out and I couldn't disable it even if I wanted to)
