As some of you know, the standard Microsoft OS distribution sold
in stores on CD is a year or so old, and doesn't include any recent
patches.  You needed to download recent patches from Microsoft's
web site.  Unfortunately, with the latest round of worms, Windows
doesn't survive on the net long enough to downdload patches.

Which is why Microsoft should issue a software equivelant of a recall. Systems shouldn't be sold vulnerable without at least a patch CD.
