You missed the point of the discussion. Also, the difference between
regular patches and security patches.
One you can choose to implement when ever you want. The other is usually
done very quickly after it is released. Every platform has occasional
security patches - including OpenVMS. You test your important apps with
the new security patch in the normal QA/Dev/Test cycle and then release
it to production.
The big difference is volume. With Windows and Linux, it is 5-20
security patches per month. And you can verify this by going to the
MS/RH web sites where they are published.
