In my opinion TeXLive's selling point is that it behaves similar on
all platforms.  But on the other hand, if there are known bugs in some
libraries which had been fixed already, I do not see any good reason
why broken stuff should be put on a CD.  The question is:

    Does the new version only provide bugfixes or does it provide new
    features (which can introduce additional bugs)?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
