Microsoft Microsoft plans to issue patches for 'critical' Windows and Office security problems as part of a regular update scheduled for Tuesday. The software company said in an advisory Thursday that it will issue four bulletins for Windows flaws and three for Office. At least one Windows and one Office problem are deemed 'critical', Microsoft's highest-risk category for security vulnerabilities, according to the advisory.

How come I don't get daily updates for Ubuntu? ;)

I think people blame MS for having insecure software that needs to be patched every week for critial security vulnerabilities. Please try to prove me wrong, but I don't think Ubuntu has that kind of track record.

Remember...the patches for a distro like Ubuntu are for ALL software packages, of which there are thousands, not the basic operating system like this MS patch.
