Sure, I agree the idea behind cumulative updates are good, but then they shouldn't break our environment every single month. That's my main complaint. Every single month something breaks. With KB3216755 it was SQL. With KB4013429 it was Veeam and MS Dynamics CRM. Not fixed with the next KB4015438. Dynamics (an MS product) was only fixed in KB4016635. That's another 2GB of updates further. Now I don't mind bandwidth or anything, but these cumulative updates take ages to install, and after that TiWorker eats one cpu for anything between 0 and two hours or so. And apart from one or two of the cumulative fixed we've had something break every single month, and usually it's MS own programs that stop working, like AppV.
Now while I like the idea of 'when they now fix it, at least the fix ends up on all machines'. True, but we are a very small company. No MS Premier account. That means when I log a case with MS, we first have to answer a buttload of useless questions over and over again and upload several gigabytes of logfiles. Maybe the issue then gets accepted, sometimes they even state the businesscase is too small to fix it for us. That means even if the issue is accepted, it takes months before a fix is released. We have several MS hotfixes on our account, but most of them took 9 - 15 months to create.
So yeah, for us it was definitely better to be able to uninstall a specific patch, and keep the rest updated.
