Upcoming Update to Windows Update [blogs.technet.com]
So what are we doing this time? Well, this particular update won’t really change the way the client looks or feels to you, but you may notice some improvements in the length of time it takes Windows Update to scan for updates and how quickly you’ll receive signature updates. For example, in this update, we’ve invested heavily in reducing the amount of time it takes the Windows Update agent to scan to see if new updates are available. In this case, we’ve seen some instances of the scan times on some machines decreasing almost 20 percent.
Not according to Bill Gates: ;)
That's a 5 year old e-mail they're quoting there. While interesting, I'm pretty sure that there have been changes to Windows Update since then. It actually works quite well today compared to the era referenced in that blog.
