Have you ever searched for new updates with Windows Update in Vista? It's slow as balls, no matter how beefy your machine is. But! Windows Update is getting an, um, update that will make it run a lot faster-scan times are down almost 20 percent. If you have automatic updates turned off, obviously you won't get this happy joy update when it rolls out at the end of the month, unless you go to Windows Update and install it manually. And you should, unless you want update scans to still take forever. [Microsoft Update Product Blog]

Scanning times aside, I love their download speed. Getting updates at the moment at 1mb per second, which probably sounds slow for a lot of people overseas, but it's pretty fast for here.
