    Just wondering because I am still on SUS and don't want to learn/deploy WSUS
    2 then turn around and learn/deploy WSUS 3.
    But if WSUS 3 won't be final until after SUS support expires then I suppose
    I will have to.
    Per MS: "After December 6, 2006, Microsoft will no longer support Software
    Update Services (SUS) 1.0 and SUS 1.0 SP1. Also, SUS 1.0 and SUS 1.0 SP1 will
    no longer synchronize new update content from Microsoft."

    Thanks for any info.

  2. You've pretty much realized your only option.

    Support for /SUS/ will terminate long before WSUS3 is a released product.

    For what it's worth... WSUS v2 has been a released product for sixteen
    months now. It was released in June, 2005.
