As it stands when doing an install with a SP1 iso, there will still be 80 or so updates that need downloaded. This would be avoided with SP2.

Fun fact: None of those updates "NEED" to be installed.

Have fun with a vulnerable system then.

Anyway, yeah, you're silly after an basic installation to not do an ISO image / sysprep onto USB or disc / WAIK

Service packs don't exist to fix specific problems, Microsoft does tend to push out a service pack if a major security threat is found. Otherwise service packs are only designed to update the OS with all updates between a certain time frame from Windows Update. So instead of updating through Windows Update, you can just pop in the service pack CD and apply them all at once.

and for businesses with IT departments, the bigger the update, the more annoying it is tbh (and more potential problems it can cause). The incremental approach is far better.

I manage our WSUS server and it's quite annoying to make sure the service packs get successfully deployed. Especially when a user tries to run it themselves. It's better now that I just deploy SP1 images, but still. It's a large update and annoying when it fails to install.

Why would you install a Windows operating system and then not apply any of the Windows Updates? that makes no sense. Vulnerable to anything as long as you're connected to the internet.

I'm not a paranoid person at all. Many people criticize of Google's privacy problems and I can really care less, I'm not paranoid by any means.

Why would I waste time with updates that do nothing? That's what makes no sense.

If they're not a needed update why bother. *And 99% of them aren't needed*

What use are they if you don't have spyware or a virus?
