I'd have to agree with most of Ted and Gayn's points. Also, it's hard to answer many of the questions when they are different for different servers. Unless there is a serious bug in something like SSH, then a paying client with a seriously firewalled server and no malicious users might get upgraded every four months. My own server might get upgraded weekly when I'm not too busy, or not for four months when I am. But a security bug with a network service would get much more immediate attention. If I still administered machines in an academic environment, my answers would be quite different, but the risk analysis that led to the different answers would (theoretically) be the same.
