In May I created a poll to sample our readers' preferences concerning the delivery of patches from their vendors.  Do you prefer the predictable delivery of a batch of security advisories and patches?  Or do you prefer a as-they-become-available model? (https://isc.sans.edu/diary.html?storyid=13150)

After the first week, I was surprised that nearly two-thirds of the poll participants preferred the predictable batch method and the few comments that did come in, didn't match up with my expectation that the breakdown would be based on the size of the environment.  Currently it's closer to my expectations showing about 3/4 prefer the "as it becomes available" method.

So, I have new hypotheses and have added a new level of detail to capture in this month's poll.

Considering the results of the poll (https://isc.sans.edu/poll.html?pollid=331&results=Y) did it turn out the way that you expected?
