One of my colleagues reported getting just 20 minutes warning that Azure was going to restart their VM as part of patching.

I wonder how many and how serious will be the issues that come out of the frantic patching rush?

Not just in terms of potential flaws in the patches, but the teams implementing patches are surely going to screw up because let’s face it the majority of ops is a shitshow. For all the progress that’s been made at the top end of the spectrum, there’s still a majority of teams that fail to test backups or have a proper staging environment.
