Windows Update Services name change?

This content is 19 years old. I don't routinely update old blog posts as they are only intended to represent a view at a particular point in time. Please be warned that the information here may be out of date.

Windows Update Services (WUS) is the new name for Software Update Services (SUS). Except it might not be. Last week, Thomas Lee (who is well placed to comment on such things, being both a Microsoft Regional Director and an MVP) quite rightly pointed out that WUS a) sounds bad; and b) is not an accurate description of what the product does.

For more information about SUS/WUS see and the Windows Update Services Wiki.
