    When you want to be the leader, you don't ask questions like that. You
    recognize problems and you solve them and one of the problems today for
    Windows is that MS is making it very difficult to keep patched if the user
    doesn't want to put the machine on the net BEFORE it's fully patched. (a
    valid security oriented attitude)

    Microsoft has proven they have the ability to solve these problems,
    windowsupdate is among the best and easiest ways to keep up to date, but
    this is a continual complaint among their customers who don't want to go on
    the net before being fully patched and it is something they do need to
    address.
