Apparently this latest patch broke network printing  again - for some.

You wouldn't think resolving this once and for all would be so hard for MS...

At least once a year I have a windows update, where after my computer restarts it just gets hung up at like 43% for hours. I let it sit, I try to be patient, but it never finishes. Best case scenario I restart my computer and try again, worst case scenario I have to use windows recovery tool because the update hang tried to murder my computer.

Lately I have been lucky with Windows updates, no issues. 
 
But lately have had my fair share of issues with MacOS Big Sur.

I found that odd as well.  I was expecting to see updates earlier in the week, but nothing.  Then this morning I got the updates mentioned by Xray above.  Everything is working fine so far.
