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.

RE[3]: patches

I see what you are saying. It is indeed annoying to need to have such massive Service Packs for even Office! What are we on...SP2 for Office?! And even so there are patches coming out every month now for an Office distro. How about Microsoft fixes problems right at the beginning before launching a product? It seems that the tried and tested rule of using Microsoft products is to wait till at least SP1 is out for the product to be stable and mature. I enjoy using Microsoft products for the most part because they are very easy and intuitive to if only Microsoft fixed things up on the security side of things it would be a lot more pleasant computing experience.
