Microsoft's new security patching routine raises concerns
Microsoft just released its first acknowledged security update for a Metro app -- and the new patching method is a disaster waiting to happen
...Microsoft is treading a very fine line here. On the desktop side, legions of beleaguered network admins labor feverishly with every wave of Windows Update patches, testing, begging, and praying that nothing will break when each patch goes out. Their (quite legitimate) concerns and bloodied noses have led to the very structured way that Microsoft now releases patches for the old-fashioned desktop.
So far, I don't know of any network admins who are fretting over Metro security patches, but that's bound to change. It remains to be seen how Microsoft will accommodate their problems -- and how many botched patches it will take to bring back some of the old precautions.
