    Yes, seems like AC66U and AC68U happened to be first to get a release that includes the auto update feature.

Windows was installed on 2013-04-20 and has applied all updates over the almost 8 years it has been used. I use the machine almost daily. It has booted 1,239 times. There are 67,944 hours since Windows...
