These matter. Regardless of which platform(s) you run, apply all patches and updates. Some of these are for non-critical feature updates, but some will address security issues and it’s vital that they’re applied as soon as they appear (in the case of updates to services we run for you, we will apply the update – that’s what you pay us for). If you’re unsure about the consequences of applying a certain update, please do ask.

Other updates modify a program in response to changes in operating systems or other elements. You could find that if you don’t apply updates some programs won’t work entirely properly any more or as smoothly as it used to with other programs.
