    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.
