Yes but...........

Microsoft does introduce a risk with their delay in sending out patches. However I would hope the delay is to ensure that adequate testing is done prior to the release. Patch management is a huge headache anyway and I'd rather have a delay in a patch being released due to testing than BSOD 7000 systems due to an untested bad patch.
