Control freak

I would much rather be the cause of outages and problems with my own systems through applying updates, than not apply updates and have some malware/hacker get into them and mess them up.

I know which updates I've tested and applied, and when I did it. Who knows what the malware/hacker has done, or how long they've been there doing it for.

The risk of not updating outweighs the risk of updating.

Lync 2013 - does not support Remote Desktop Session Host.

Oops!

Shame, because in Server 2012, RDSH performance and functioanality is great, and Lync 2013/Skype for Business is also great. But not if you want to use them both together.

Might be some other relevant stuff in here for some people: https://rcmtech.wordpress.com/2014/09/11/why-im-not-deploying-windows-desktops-using-remote-desktop-services/

Re: @Mark

HP do still have Maintenance and Service Guides available as PDFs, I used one to help me upgrade a Folio 13-2000 laptop last year, was very detailed and easy to find via Google.
