Default Windows "Preview" Updates

I'm confused by these optional "preview" updates.

They don't download ready to install like important updates.

I suspect they are subsumed into proper important updates later on.

So can I just ignore them?

Default Re: Windows "Preview" Updates

This is the MS definition(my emphasis)I presume/hope when MS say 'tested', it means past the beta stage.

Preview of Monthly Rollup

Definition: A tested, cumulative set of new updates that are packaged together and distributed over Windows Update, WSUS, System Center Configuration Manager and Microsoft Update Catalog ahead of the release of the next Monthly Rollup for customers to proactively download, test and provide feedback. The Preview of Monthly Rollup is product specific and addresses new non-security updates, and includes fixes from the latest Monthly Rollup. This Preview of Monthly Rollup would be displayed under the title Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup when you download or install and will be classified as an "Optional" update.

I don't see why not. I've never taken any notice of them on any of our Windows 7 PCs and nothing dreadful has happened so far.
