I thought the answer is yes, but someone I know (IN New Zealand) is telling me she saw on the MS website that you have to use IE to get updates...
Automatic updates doesn't require IE use,
There are two ways I'm aware that you can get them, one without IE, one using IE for only that purpose;
If Automatic Updates is turned on they will still get pushed to you and installed, or notified of the need to install new updates
You can still go to Tools, Windows Update in IE occasionally to check for new updates.
MS has come out with several updates/patches over the past couple weeks, so take a look.
There may be others, but those are the ways I know of.
