Windows XP key to Microsoft's secure computing
Microsoft has delayed the launch of its improved software update services and advised all non-Windows XP users, including those using Windows 2000 desktop, to upgrade if they want secure computing.
Windows Update Services, the successor to Software Update Services 2.0, which automatically patches Windows code, is delayed to the first half of 2005 after a first public beta later this year. The beta had been due to appear this summer preceding an autumn release.
