OMG! Windows No Longer Supports Hotfixes

For almost as long as I can remember, Microsoft has published hotfixes, or small patches, to the Windows operating system. However, they’re doing away with that functionality. Microsoft posted this statement:

The Hotfix service is no longer available. Instead you can find your fix or patch by upgrading to the latest update available for your product. You can also obtain Microsoft drivers, software updates, and other support files by downloading them from the Microsoft Catalog, the Microsoft Download Center, or upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 10 contains the most up-to-date security and other features built right in.
