Include a software update service with my OS please?

Here is a rant, why doesn't every OS provide a software update service?
I may be the only one, but I doubt it, but the idea of having MANY small little services that are running to check for recent updates. Even worse are the ones that check as I launch the app. Has anyone told these people that when I want my document/App, I want it NOW. If you go off and check stuff every time you launch, it seems absurd to me.
I have and am using various ones now, App Fresh and Version Tracker. These are cute and do mostly work, however I need to regularly run these apps to get my updates AND not all applications update the same way, so I have to manually have to do the upgrade anyway.
Now, provide a registration service on every OS. Each application must provide a URL to get access to information about latest releases.
Why is this not being done already? If it is, then why is it not on my OS of choice yet
