    Wsus is what Microsoft calls its updating service and you can use it to download a local copy of their updates for any Microsoft software including all the service packs. A single person with only one machine is better off doing things the normal way but if you have a couple extra machines and certainly once you start getting into virtualization esp. XP then the ability to have all the patches you might need for any of these machines all available when you need them without using up internet resources becomes the more attractive option.

    XP users without a wsus won't be able to patch it after April this year.
