I'm sorry I have to say this:

Nobody will update because they will be playing Call of Duty Black Ops. It's true.

Adobe and Flash have now officially become Microsoft and Windows XP (Pre SP2.) with this cluster of almost bi weekly security holes.

It's all public perception. By far, the most unsecured and exploit ridden software it Safari and iTunes. But everyone would rather say Windows or Adobe, because that's what all the cool kids say now-a-days.
