    OK, Who's in agreement that Microsoft needs to release

    SP3 for Windows Server 2003 that encompasses all these freaking updates.

    Oh, and Windows XP SP4 that encompasses all these freaking updates.

    I know, I know, obsolete so they wont.

    I tell ya, it's enough to pull my grey hair out

    It would be nice - very annoying when installing the 1000000000 updates that you have to run the installer for IE 9 as well!

    I see your point and often feel the same way as stated but hey, that's Microsoft for you:)

    There are some people that release update packages consisting of them all and slipstreamed into a single install. But they're always missing the latest updated and you need to ask yourself if you trust these compilations... But you could make one yourself if you have a few weeks to spare...

    I know, I did that once back in the SP2 days and yes, a good week was about it.

    Now, I just did a Windows Server 2003 SP2 R2 and what was it, had to have been close to 300 updates. Crazy!

    Just don't have that kind of time, I am a consultant with about 50 clients, I don't work for an individual company, time is a precious commodity.
