uh. what the heck is this? This sounds like BS. since when does microsoft call it a "rollup". They use the term "service pack". I heard something a while back about some update claiming to be microsoft, but was really a trojan or something and microsoft released a statement saying not to download anything that's not in windows update.

 

Maybe bigred can shed some light on this.

It makes it so that if you have a computer off of the internet or whatever you can update the computer with all the security patches and stuff.

or a dial up user can d/l it at another location, burn it to a cd then install it.

 

or someone who is setting up many machines with windows doesn't have to d/l and install every update repetedly, just burn say dx9, sp1 and the update roll up on to a cd and install from there.

 

or one of serveral other senarios that come to mind.
