The thought occurred to me that perhaps this is one of the things MS did get right. By having
their Patch <day of the week> they provide the feeling that it's all planned, everything is
under control. I wonder what would have happened if the Wireshark guys had annouced they were
doing a proactive audit and that a new release would happen every first day of the month with
all the issues found in the last month.
Now, the free software community to too large to coordinate anything like that. But imagine if
a distributor decided that all non-critical security updates would happen only on wednesdays,
would people "feel" safer due to it being planned, even though you're sacrificing a little
security (a few days delay).
