Journal weave's Journal: Why can't Microsoft just update their distribution CDs?

Take a gander at this...

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/tools/nt4new.asp?frame=true

How to install Microsoft NT securely. First, they say it HAS to be done off the network and from a CD which involves a major hassle...

Then, get this...

  1. Install SP 6a
  2. Update IE
  3. Install Option Pack to upgrade IIS
  4. Reinstall SP 6a
  5. Install NT Security Roll-up
  6. Install patch Q305929
  7. Install IIS rollup patch
  8. Install and run Hfnetchk tool
  9. Install and run IIS lockdown wizard

Why the hell can't they just re-release their products with all security patches and updates rolled into the distribution so it's done during the FIRST install?
