Default Hotpatching makes welcome appearance in Vista SP1 RC

Hotpatching is a process in which Windows components are updated while still in use by a running process. As you can imagine, this handy feature eliminates the need to reboot, maximizing system uptime and minimizing user headaches. According to Microsoft, hotpatch-enabled update packages are installed in a similar manner to standard update packages. The company's description of the feature seems to suggest that this ability is inherent to Vista, but was previously disabled or incomplete.

I was going to say it was already supposed to be a feature of the OS... and for the majority of installs and patches it seemed to have been working. Will keep an eye on it...
