If users switched software everytime a flaw was discovered they would be
spending most of their time uninstalling and installing software and
likely never actually getting anything productive done.

A quote from the above referenced link:

"On Wednesday, Symantec Corp. reported it had obtained a suspicious Word
document that crashed every version of the application except the newest,
Word 2007, when opened."

Hardly a need to switch to different software. A better solution is to not
open unsolicited attachments.
