If I might throw an opinion in here? Update ..always update for the reasons people already said. Those who want in, already have ways to get there
..and those who don't? Those are who the updates for security block out.
A word of caution though? Since losing a new install last year to this, I have come to make the first update to a new install an incremental thing. I
mean after the Service packs are in (depending on version). Select from the top down on the update list, but not ALL of them at ONCE. Not when it's
dozens and dozens upon more to run.
I don't know what happened with me, and it may have been a one-off fluke, but running them all together conflicted something, somewhere and nuked
that install. I've never had it repeat in doing it a chunk at a time.
