    Looks like Microsoft Support has finally wised up and made it easier to obtain those pesky hotfixes that you used to have to contact Microsoft for specifically.

    While not completely publicly available, all that is needed is to fill out this form which sends an email back to you with a link to the requested hotfix.

    I've used the site a few times now. The last of which took about two hours.

    OK so it took near three hours, but it provided a patch in every language for every flavor of Windows!

    Awesomeness!
