WSUS Glitch De-Glitched

From our previous item, it's clear just how important it is to patch, regardless of occasional conflicts.

Microsoft has already fixed the software that is itself designed to fix software.

My guess is that the rush to fix problems is creating flawed patches and conflicts with other bits of software. What say you? Is the speed or the stability of a patch more important? Send your answers to [email protected].
