Microsoft Microsoft plans to issue patches for 'critical' Windows and Office security problems as part of a regular update scheduled for Tuesday. The software company said in an advisory Thursday that it will issue four bulletins for Windows flaws and three for Office. At least one Windows and one Office problem are deemed 'critical', Microsoft's highest-risk category for security vulnerabilities, according to the advisory.

So Microsoft is releasing a 'regular update' with some security fixes...and somehow this relates to your distaste for WGA, even though you use linux and it doesn't affect you.

I'm sure I'm just being dense about making the connection... Maybe I used my Wintel laptop at work for too long today, and need to chill here on my gentoo box for a bit before it makes sense.

afaik MS mandates WGA to update now. That could be the connection.
