DirectX 9.0b

Though the update is not yet on the DirectX website, a new DirectX 9.0b End-User Runtime is now available for each version of Windows via the Windows Update dealie (thanks Ant) and this webpage (thanks TopTechTips). Word is: "DirectX 9.0b includes security and performance updates. Download now to get the latest DirectX updates. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. Once you have installed this item, it cannot be removed."

Schnapple, you're (presumably) looking at this from the single home user's standpoint.

Now try looking at it from the standpoint of a server admin who has to maintain a server farm of 2000 servers, all of which must remain patched to the same level etc. I'm sure you'd THEN see why "people complain about this".

It's not the fact that it gets PATCHED that bugs me, it's the fact that those patches are released every two days that bugs me. They COULD just gather up fifteen patches and release them once every three weeks, for convenience's sake. Yes, that would leave the server farm vulnerable for three weeks, but it's a risk MANY server admins would gladly take. Rebuilding ten servers that have been attacked takes NOWHERE NEAR as much time as implementing 2000 patches every other day.
