The recommended recipe for success is as follows. Quote from: http://www.itworld.com/article/2735940/security/how-hackers-get-caught.html
Because MS killed security only updates many IT people were reluctant to swallow MS all-in-one shady updates.
Speaking of LinuxDo all popular distros offer security updates?Are you offered to review the security updates and select which one to install?
If I understand you correctly all security updates concerning the OS are kernel patches.Security updates for third party software like Java, .NET, browser, ..., are separate update packages/patches.
I assume that those security updates apply to both, the OS and third party software bundled with it. Correct?
What happens if (I assume it's possible) you uninstall some third party software of the bundle or replace it with other ones?Does the OS detect if the security updates don't match the modified bundle?
Besides, there is also Wine.
In Wine you'd have to update manually or use whichever auto-updater is included in a Windows application. Expecting the system to take care of that would be highly irrational.
You can pin packages...
Third-party software in general (such as Opera or Vivaldi) often maintains its own repos that integrate with the system.
Just to keep it clear, "BSD" is not a Linux distro. It is another operating system - or better, another class of operating systems descendant from the old Unix - or something like that.
This is a gross technical term. You "pin" only in the graphical package manager. It means "to exclude from the common update cycle".
as convenient as MS updates
