  • "You can snag these updates now via Windows Update" Or not. Personally, I will delay updates until the day before the 2nd Tuesday in July. By then, the 2nd Tuesday in June updates might be safe to install.
  • I installed the cumulative updates yesterday.
    The updates is merely about security of Microsoft Office, lE and others.
    If you have installed the 2004 version, then you should patch it with this update for the sake of the security of the Microsoft tools.
  • On 2004, this has silently added the new 2-in-1 improvements when tablet mode is disabled. This has been on both an Insider and a non-Insider device.
  • The latest update has brought more bugs.
