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.

No it's not the difference. Ubuntu (my distro) and probably other Linux distros have to be patched regularly and often for security bugs, yet it's the best thing since self sealing stem bolts. Or is it a "you get what you pay for" issue?
