This just in from EP:

Microsoft has a relatively light bunch of patches coming out of the Automatic Update chute today.
Now’s the time to double-check and make sure that you have Windows Automatic Update set to “Notify but don’t download.” Details on the “Automatic Update” tab above.
Microsoft plans to issue five security bulletins, only one of which – another IE patch – is rated critical. Turn off Auto Update now, and let’s see what kind of offal hits the fan.
I’m moving us back up to MS-DEFCON 2: Patch reliability is unclear. Unless you have an immediate, pressing need to install a specific patch, don’t do it.

It’s a very fine line.

The Acer Iconia W3.
Ho-hum hardware, but two big surprises.

A brief collection of the best comments about the InfoWorld “Windows Red” post. Warning: they aren’t all positive, but some are very perceptive.

There’s never been a better time — at least, not recently — to get all of Microsoft’s patches applied. Go, go, go.
The lingering problem with KB 2823324 has been fixed with KB 2840149, and the fix (unlike so many other fixes in the past) seems to be working well.
The May 2013 Black Tuesday patches have passed the “cannon fodder” test. Install them.
Several of you are still reticent about installing Internet Explorer 10 on your Windows 7 systems. There were some problems with the first iterations of IE 10 running on Win7, but now all looks good. Install it.
Go, go, go.
I’m lowering us to a (very unusual) MS-DEFCON 5: All’s clear. Patch while it’s safe.
