Just Security Updates? I'll Take It!!! glad I found this out after checkinh out this ComputerWorld article.

It turns out the previous FAQ that I have quoted above is outdated and will be corrected, quoted from article link above.

Mike Cure then clarified the situation by promising: I'll get [the ESU FAQ] corrected as soon as possible.
