Fedora and Debian do not support as many releases as Ubuntu and thus the
time consumption to package and test if any regressions appear is longer
than for others.

But honestly, the time frame from the patches being published to having
security updates in Ubuntu was ~ 48 hours, which is good in my opinion.
Just compare it to once a month (granted that for such critical bugs MS
would probably do an exception)
