When it comes to Microsoft every month is a big month for patches. They sure have a lot of bugs in their software.

With as many security holes in OS's its amazing that they can still find new ones that have existed since windows 95.

Either the software wasn't coded for security or just plain bad coding. With all the people working on them things should be super secure by now.

So, if new patches are being created every week it makes me worry how many are still in them.

BrianC6234, Sarick ..... lol... braking news... MAC, LINUX also get patches.... firefox gets patches every 3-4 days... Only if you knew better you would understand how big OS are and how dedicated hackers are... didn't MAC new OS get hacked in minutes?

As a programmer I can tell you that code can never be 100% secure... if there is a door; there is always a way to get in...

So, why does Windows get more security updates? Isn't this obvious? It supports more programs and it targetted more by hackers do to installbase.

ohh and yeah... "security holes" are not always on the OS.. but on software installed... most hacks are done using 3rd party software... like in the case of VISTA with flash....

It's like installing VNC in your computer and setting a 12345 passwork... and blaming the OS for it.
