"never"? I assume you mean "never have more than".

Re: Linux updates: Maaaybe. But even if that's the case, it takes seconds for it to determine what needs to be updated for each round of updates, not multiple minutes.

When I do that, when it comes back up, it often decides that it needs to apply another round of updates. When that happens for you, do you just wait for the next window?

But that assumes that your server can be rebooted whenever. I have systems where I have to schedule maintenance windows. If I want to bring Windows up to date during that maintenance window, I have to run Windows Update multiple times. (I'm going to add that to the question.)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that just effectively fix the "download" part? It's not nothing, but the "checking to see what updates I need" part is just as long, if not longer.
