    Microsoft controversially brings cumulative updates to W7 & W8.1

    So much for October. My server, the W7 box, and the W8.1 machines in the house all did Cumulative Updates today, outside of the normal patch cycle.

    Nothing new on the W10 boxes, which is why I think it is this schedule that @qubit did the OP on.
