Update5 has only been out for like 5 months, right?
Yes, but v6 will be different in that:

- It aims to block out pirated editions...again. Updates will be delivered to all machines (including pirated versions) through Automatic Update though.
- Integration of several Microsoft products into one single update system. This is the reason for the name change from Windows Update to Microsoft Update. So basically, one site to update Windows, Office etc. :)

That would be very nice, yes! So tedious to run multiple updates when installing a new machine.
