Is there a way like in Linux how you update ALL your software a way to also update ALL your Windows software at the same time? Or just to check and see which applications are outdated and need to be manually updated.

I know mac has MacUpdater for example and Linux uses Yum and Apt-get.

Yum and Apt only update what was installed through them. It does not update software that wasnt. I have plenty of Linux software packages that have to be updated manually. – Keltari Sep 17 '13 at 1:35

There are several software for this, for example.

  • SUMo (Software Update Monitor)

Scott Hanselman has an nice post on Chocolatey. Don't know any more about it than what I read there, but it does seem similar to apt-get and friends.
