That's really dumb.

Lots of organisations release "service packs", sometimes under this banner and sometimes under others. It helps to make patching easier and simplified.

Why should one be expected to download 50+ updates if the vendor is prepared to bundle this into a package?

I know a lot of people like to bash and ridicule Microsoft, sometimes rightfully so, but in this case it's unwarranted.
