Patching Window closed

Certain "security experts" reportedly believe that the patching window is non-existent. I guess the journalist who swallowed that line must have missed out on the last few year's discussion about zero day attacks. He goes on to discuss the merits of the white hat community sharing information about vulnerabilities and patches (again, largely ignoring the ongoing professional discussion about vulnerability disclosure) and ends with the implication that patching even quicker is somehow the answer to the patching window being closed. Errrrm ... call me a cynic but how does that work?
