Windows patches may become automatic

According to this CNET article Microsoft is planning swift action in response to the recent surge of viruses and worms:

A Microsoft representative said the company is “giving strong consideration to enabling Auto Update by default in future versions of Windows,” though the company has not yet committed to a time frame.

Did you hear that hackers? Strong consideration! Oh man, I love it when Bill comes out swinging like that. Next thing you know they are going to be thinking about making Internet Explorer more standards based.

Hurrah for Microsoft!
