SQL Slammer patch fit on a floppy (I remember - I walked around with that
floppy for hours that night).
Blaster patch fits on a floppy unless you're running a 64-bit version of
Windows, in which case it is over 5MB. Seems like the patch for Windows
Server 2003 32-bit may be ~4-5MB, too.

Not gonna touch that one. :)
FWIW, I only run Linux servers, so I don't have an interest in defending MS
- just setting the filesize record straight :)
