An Easy Patch Tuesday

You may not want to take next Tuesday entirely off, but you shouldn't be exactly overwhelmed with patch work either.

There are zero critical items, and five deemed as important. As usual, Office, Windows Server and Windows itself get the lion's share of fixes, though it seemed that IE ducked out of this round.

How long does it take you to install patches and do you prioritize based on criticality? Send your hopefully best practices to dbarney@redmondmag.com.

It takes far more time to research all the patches, to check for known issues, to see what has been the experience of others who have applied them than to actually to the patching, even on nine servers (which is a reletively small number I know).
