I know I havent written anything in a little bit, sorry about that. I wanted to do a quick run down of some of the servicing related questions I have seen from customers over the last week or so with their answers in the hopes that it might help one of you in the future.
Those are the one's I've seen this week that I thought were particularly interesting. Hope that helps answer a question or two you might have had in the past.
UPDATE: I wanted to provide more clarification around item to above after a discussion with the product group. The reason for update regulation is to relase content in a measured, deliberate way. We want to ensure that we are not pushing more content out than ISPs and CDNs can handle, so we balance bandwidth considerations against the need to provide the update(s) as rapidly as possible. For security updates, this regulation happens very quickly (we move from 0-100% faster). The same thing holds true for large updates such as IE and Service Packs with the exception that they tend to throttle out more slowly until they are broadly available to all customers. Regulated updates also behave differently based on the way a user selects to install the update.
