There was an interesting article in the Washington Post recently:


It included the text:

        The chance of a patch wrecking Windows is dwarfed by the 
        odds that an unpatched PC will get hit. And for those 
        saying they don't trust Microsoft to fix their systems, 
        I have one question: If you don't trust this company, 
        why did you give it your money?

I like that last question, even if (or perhaps "especially since" {8^) I 
bring it to a different conclusion than others may.
