Microsoft sends out invites for Update Service

Eric Brodish, Beta Coordinator for Microsoft has sent out invites to testers asking them to participate in a new Service Pack for Microsoft Update v6. The beta scheduled to start in the beginning of 2006 will concentrate on improving services to Microsoft Update, a seperate service offered by Microsoft's Windows Update program.

 

Microsoft Update combines Windows and Office updates to a central point and when a user activates the service it replaces Windows Update. It is not yet the default service linked from Internet Explorer or Automatic Updates from Windows XP.
