    Hi Friends:

    How many updates did you receive today (10/8/13) for Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit with Media Center?

    I didn't receive any update for Windows 8.1 today...just 24 updates for Office 2013, 1 update for SkyDrive Pro, 3 updates for Silverlight and 2 updates for IE11...30 updates total

    What's your take?

    Thanks

    TecMan

    If I am not wrong, How come you can expect an update for 8.1 which is not even released officially? You should wait till October 18 to get the update / patch.

    I was surprised we got so little, since this is the last PT before GA. Maybe they'll drop something next Thursday?

    As a point of reference, 8 received a LOT more updates between RTM and GA than 8.1.

    Yesterday's update for Office 2013 was more like a SP. Huge list and size of updates. MS's updates are getting cumbersome and painful. Does it say something that updates over the last 1 year per month are much larger in number and in size.

    Windows 8.1 is not yet officially aligned with other OSes... I just got the Flash and IE11 update. I've read the next week we will get many updates, right before the official release; and I guess there will be many more than 40.

    btw these office updates have only minor effect on GA 8.1, to make this clear. After oct 18 there will be a nice package for windoze

    MS sometimes holds off on patches just before releasing things. I know this wasn't the case for 8.0.
    It was the case for Office 2010 sp2 a few months ago. There were no security patches for a month or two and then blam, SP2.
