"Plus ... why the hell *WOULDN'T* you want this security flaw patched?"

You wouldn't want a Windows flaw patched if you are a hardcore FLOSS advocate on a crusade to rid the world of everything Microsoft.

You wouldn't want a Windows security flaw patched if someone miles away decided when to reboot your computer!

One right [providing the patch] + One wrong [forceful implementation + forced reboot] doesn't make one right!
