Microsoft kills SUS update software
Microsoft is killing off its SUS update software, released more than three years ago to aid sysadmins.
From December, the software giant will not offer patches and other updates to the free Software Update Services (SUS). Instead, people will be expected to move to the newer Windows Software Update Services (WSUS), currently at version 2.0.
The SUS server is installed locally on company networks to collect new patches for testing and subsequent deployment. It has not been available for download since last year but continues to be used in many small and mid-sized organisations that dont want to, or cant afford to run Systems Management Server.
