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.

People are blame MS for release bugfix but they love Ubuntu with daily updates. Seriously, I don't get it.

There are two kind of updates in Ubuntu GNU/Linux:
- normal updates
- security updates

Normal updates happen often (but not DAILY). It updates functionally and additional capabilities. NOT bug fixes.

Security updates contains bug fixes. It does not happens DAILY too. There have been only a few security updates and those are usually during the first few week of a major version release. Plus the security updates team responds a lot more swiftly to bugs reports and security holes compared to MS teams.

There are NO DAILY updates in Ubuntu. You must have been confused by the rigorous and frequent normal and security updates that happens in Ubuntu development/beta/pre-release versions. Of course those happens daily.
