Microsoft Microsoft no longer thinks Linux poses a threat to its desktop Windows business. Directions on Microsoft's Wes Miller pointed out via Twitter how Microsoft has changed the boilerplate "Competition" section in its last two annual financial filings with the SEC.

I agree that unified update is missing on Windows. It is the one good thing about appstores and web-applications: They make people use new versions. (good for home, not always good for business, but let's not go to deep)

HOWEVER, just because Microsoft doesn't provide a nice tool for this, doesn't mean others don't! You (and every Windows user!) should check out http://ninite.com/
Basically, I run Microsoft Update to update all my Microsoft software and drivers and my own ninite.exe to update 90% of my other software. That basically leaves only Total Commander that I need to update manually and that is barely a "hunt" (http://ghisler.com/amazons3.php)
