After reading this a couple of times I think this is definitely worth sharing. I don’t recall seeing anything this huge involving hotfixes by Microsoft. Today, MS has released a massive Slow Boot Slow Login (SBSL) Hotfix Rollup for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. It includes 90, say again 90, hotfixes to these two operating systems. I went through a couple of the included hotfixes and yes, those are something that has not been distributed through Windows update. Instead, a hotfix is something that you request and download separately for a particular issue.
There are so many organizations suffering from slow login and boot times, that this is a highly anticipated effort from Microsoft. I think this is awesome, but this is something that needs to be tested thoroughly and repeatedly in a test environment before even dreaming about putting it in production. I’ll be following this closely and it will be super interesting to see real-life experiences on this. I mean, 90 hotfixes!
