But as to your "Windows Update is a very pale comparison to the "mechanism" built into many (most/all) linux distros" that's simply not true.
It works as least as well as does apt.

Perhaps it is me that knows too little about windows but what I miss in Windows update is some way to get information about installed files.
So far I havn't been able to find some place in windows where you can get information on what progaram a certain file or dll belongs to, o r a description of what it does or what other programs that depend on it. I have also failed to find some way to list all files that is installed with a certain peace of software.
