Default Can someone explain this update to me?

Platform Update for Windows Vista x64-based Systems (KB971644)

The Platform Update for Windows Vista is a collection of runtime libraries that make it easy for developers to target a wider customer base.

That's pretty vague. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hmm...

Doesn't sound too critical. If you have concerns about it, don't dl it.

Thing is MS page explains that this is already a part of Win 7. Even though I have little to no issues with Vista, I still see 7 as an improvement on it, so I wouldn't mind the dl, I just like to know what it is.
