Starting this Tuesday (May 12th) Microsoft will release up to ten test updates to PCs running the Windows 7 RC in order to verify its ability to deliver and manage updating of Windows 7 in certain real-life scenarios. These updates do not deliver any new features or fixes. This is the second set of test updates they have released to test the updating mechanism for Windows 7.

As far as i know the test updates test Windows Update capabilities and one is to test the notification system that is in use on 7. From what i have read some will automatically update and some you will have to apply yourself.

The others are language packs, so they may/may not be needed. I only use English so i didn't install them to be honest.

I'm sure you can ignore them but they way i look at it, Microsoft let us use 7 for free so helping with tests will hopefully make a better finished product than Vista was when released, but its up to you Olg.
