There are patches and online update for the business products as well. It's
just that every now and then, they collect all the patches released so far
and put them together on an ISO image (or three) and call it a service pack.
It is then possible to install directly from that service pack so your
machine will start up with all those patches, so the initial online update
only gets the patches released since that service pack
