"Windows people tend to have far fewer of those than OS-X or Linux users these days...."

Really? FYI Microsoft XP is no longer supported perhaps you should upgrade. Might explain why you aren't getting those patches anymore. I operate Win7-10 and not only is patch Tuesday still patch Tuesday but I reboot fairly frequently for incremental updates to various parts of the OS. Not to mention that after-patch Wednesday is the day new exploits go wild and usually thrive until the next patch Tuesday. There is a good argument from non-system don't-make-us work-hard-more-than-once-a-month" admins that security may benefit from a compressed cycle of updates now and again....
