Y’know, it’s funny when Mozilla releases updates to its Firefox
browser (which I use almost exclusively these days), people tout
it as A Good Thing&trade but when Microsoft releases patches or
updates for their products, it becomes another nail in their
coffin for releasing vulnerable software. Can’t be helped as
it’s they themselves who have dug the hole and got consumers to
subsequently brand them as such. Still, the heck with such
trivialities. At the end of the day, no matter what platform or
software you use, if it’s vulnerable and the user/admin doesn’t
do anything to patch or update his or her machine accordingly,
they’re the ones who’d be getting nailed.

On the subject of patches, if you’re running Windows Server 2003,
Microsoft has just released Service Pack 1
last night. They have also made the Windows XP x64 Editon
and Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition
both RTM (Released To Manufacturing) and available for download
to MSDN subscribers. I managed to snag the ISOs as well as the
64-bit drivers for the devices on my PC
earlier today. Will be trying them out later tonight.
