(Not) keeping up with patches
I was recently at a meeting of otherwise fairly tech-savvy people, and the subject meandered on to patches. A surprising number of people had never
updated their stock Windows XP install. Some cited lack of trust in Microsoft. Others were worried about their system suddenly becoming unstable. (Those sets overlapped.) Two people used the "I only plug my laptop in behind a firewall" excuse.
Hah. Hah, I say. Someone's gonna get 0wn3d, if they haven't been already.
