It may have been inevitable, but I think one has a moral responsibility to fix problems they cause. Remember, the biggest victim of vulnerble code is the internet as a whole, not the person who may be using microsofts products without a license. I think you can make a very strong case for microsoft having a moral obligation to provide patches for everyone.
