Build secure code and Microsoft wouldn't have to update so often.

This is far from trivial. All systems have flaws that need to be fixed when discovered, then there are feature upgrades and other changes, not to mention legacy codebase that may need to be maintained for compatibility. Regardless, one would have to carefully evaluate the use cases against the update cadence and other impacts, and to test thoroughly before adopting broadly.

UNIX OS don’t seems to have the same issues.

Indeed, it has different issues 🙂 On a more serious note, while humans are writing software there will be no secure code, though some things might be more secure than others.

I do agree. Why can’t MS develop a robust OS that requires less updates
