How will this idea be used?

the fact that IBM is so far behind on certification of Windows versions causes a negative perception of the product.

Our organization is left open to potential security flaws, and also forced to invest in extended support.  By providing this function, it will address these concerns. Doing so in a timely manner will also increase perception of IBM as a whole within the organization
