    That bloody thing was ready on the fourth of february, but the availability of it was delayed until mid march!
    It seems we are seeing the same pattern with SP2.

    Giving people time to implement the update blocker, so that all your users don't start updating before you are ready ?

    Well, I repeat what I wrote:

    I understand that it would be foolish to release it now via Windows Update, but what is the argument against releasing it now on the download center?

    And if you meant that users (on a corporate network) would download it then from download center.... well, duh, if your users can freely download programs from the internet and execute them (with admin privileges) without much hassle, then you're in trouble anyway. With such security... what would stop them to download it from some dodgy site?
