I sometimes wonder, were it possible to patch every conceivable vulnerability, just how many patches it would take?

Agreed. The best patch is going to the same trusted websites and running MSE along with Malwarebytes.

Patching everything all at once for all possible security holes is like saying making every house disaster proof, it's simply not possible. You can do your best to get people to reduce their risks by educating them then providing them some measure to keep things under control, then implement patches quickly as you would an emergency service after calling 911. Microsoft definitely gets props for being proactive with Windows 7, even Mac users are hard pressed to criticize their efforts.
