Windows Update Services Wiki

In a recent post, I wrote about the WUS Service Beta 2. I've been playing with it a lot over the holidays (and filing a bunch of bug reports). Due out by the end of the 1st half of 2005, this is a great step forward from SUS. But there is a lot of work still to do on usability! One neat feature of the beta has been the creation of the Windows Update Services Wiki. This is all community developed and includes information on installation, deployment as well as FAQs and details of confirmed issues. The cool thing is that this is all being developed by the community - this is not a Microsoft site (although some MS employee do contribute!). An interesting thing about the site is the traffic analysis - take a look, it's global (and IE only accounts for 78% of the traffic). The site is getting around 180 hits/day, with an average of 3.4 page hits/visit. Not bad given the new-news of the product!
