When was the last time you installed a Micr0$0ft security fix that was
less than 5MB? (I have yet to see one)

SQL Slammer patch fit on a floppy (I remember - I walked around with that
floppy for hours that night).
Blaster patch fits on a floppy unless you're running a 64-bit version of
Windows, in which case it is over 5MB. Seems like the patch for Windows
Server 2003 32-bit may be ~4-5MB, too.

Shall we also compare the realtive timetables between vulnerability 
awareness and general patch availablility?

Not gonna touch that one. :)

FWIW, I only run Linux servers, so I don't have an interest in defending MS
- just setting the filesize record straight :)
