SBS 2008 Patch Management

Body: I’ve just finished writing the patch management chapter of my book on SBS 2008 and thought I would share this screenshot with you.  This comes from the new reporting in SBS 2008 and I’ve configured it to send me a daily email with just the updates status of my network. This image shows a fully patched SBS 2008 network.
