    ...Performing the routine Microsoft patching we do the 3rd Wednesday night of each month at our company. The .Net patches released this month seem kind of fat they are taking a while to install. Yawn, job security.

    I understand the need for .Net but it has always appeared to me as being a bloated chunk of code that kills machine performance.

    Only my Win 7 64bit can run .Net without a huge hit in performance.

    also have noted strange things in .net related to security that I hope they have patched in this latest release.

    I'm assuming all those servers really need .Net. Its one thing I like about server 2008. Not there by default.

    A lot of products will install it for you.

    Grrr, When I was supporting Windows servers I spent way to many hours repairing broken .Net installations. Partial salvation was finding the .Net removal tool.

    True. I have some terminal servers that need patched during our maintenance window.

    not using WSUS and AD to patch your servers automatically?

    I won't let them use that with my Terminal Servers, ever since they let a version of IE out that wasn't compatible with some addins we were still using. I patch them manually.
