Windows 7 Release Date Announced:

October 22, 2009

So lets get this right, MS is going to be updating 4 OSes at once:
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7


Thats a lot of updates to push out every month.

Just curious, When are they going to end updates for Win2000?

Patch Tuesday heads-up: Critical Windows, IE fixes coming

Interesting indeed!  Apparently this Extremely critical 0-day exploit of Microsoft DirectX is not going to be patched next Tuesday.  If you have a vulnerable system, follow the directions I've linked here for applying a workaround immediately.  Windows Vista is not affected.

Vista is their flagship OS now so if its not affected then they might not consider this a very high risk threat. Im sure Win 2k/XP will get the patch next month.

You're apparently using an incompatible browser try Firefox or IE.

You'll find an explanation of the 505 error code here:

The link works perfectly well with Opera 9.64 as well as with those Bob mentioned above.
