Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

For how long will Server 2008 keep getting updates?

Until those stop coming out, it looks like Vista will be the only Microsoft OS whose users continue to enjoy maximum freedom! :thumbup

Server 2008 will recieve updates for as long as Windows 7, that is, until 14th January 2020.

EDIT: Also, some interesting info: Windows Thin PC, which is a slimmed down version of Windows 7, with only a x86 install option, will have support until 12th October 2021. This means Windows 7 users might have an extra year of x86 support (sorry x64 users, I can't find any obscure Windows 7 variant that has support beyond 2020).

But from what I've seen in recent documentation, Server 2008 (non-r2) will be shifting to unified servicing as well.  I'm sure if Server 2012 updates work on Windows 8, that also Server 2008 patches will work on Vista too.

(er, I hope)

Thanks greenhillmaniac and JodyT.

I guess time will tell for sure if we Vista users will keep enjoying that freedom, or if there will even be a way to install new patches after April.

Well, it appears that now I can only download KB3197876 from the Microsoft Update Catalog and not from the Bulletins Page.  Plus the file name has the SHA1 hash built in to the file name.  There were no .NET files of any kind.  This appeared to be the only update.  So I'll attempt installation now.  Here's some info on this in the meantime:

So it installed with aplomb.  Did any one else source updates that I might've missed?

Wow I never saw that Flash update in the list.  Hmmmmmm.  Maybe I'm too preoccupied.  Nonetheless thanks Greenhillmaniac.

Ahoy greenhillmaniac!  If I'm not mistaken, today is that rather special Tuesday, so time to awaken this thread from just over a month of slumber.

I'll be on it later today.

I look forward to it :lol:

BTW, forgot to mention: I've updated the repository with the Monthly Rollups, both Security Only and Quality and Security ones. I've also added a folder named "Extras", with a mix of non security updates and Update Rollups that I think should be installed in every NT6.2 system (like the new July 2016 servicing stack update). Do check it out :)

I will check the servicing stack update out.  I hope it gives a good description of it, so I know what I'm putting on my system.

So I have downloaded the Security Only Update KB3205408.  Also I have a .NET Security Only patch for .NET v4.6x, which is KB3204801.

So let's update and see how it goes.  See you after the boot :)

Yes it's Eight Breeze - very 7-ish.  I deleted the shellstyle those because it was this funky blue across the top.  But I like it.
