Re: Patching

It may not be complicated but the development and testing of custom scripts costs real time and money. Every custom script adds up and at some point the cost tips in favour of buying an off the shelf solution. Since this comes free with Windows it's a definite consideration. Red Hat licences plus management adds up to more than the cost of Windows so open source isn't necessarily always cheaper at the enterprise scale.
