I am still getting weekly security patches from Microsoft for Windows 7 which shows that this OS is either not "mature" or has the same vulnerabilities of all preceding versions of Windows which share the same flawed architecture.

There is no general-purpose operating system, not even Linux or Apple variants, which does not get patched on a regular basis to fix security loopholes and fix bugs.  This is a sad fact of the industry that has nothing to do with whether an operating system is "mature" or not.

By your definition all operating systems are "flawed" because they all contain bugs.  There's a corollary in the software business:

  • No non-trivial program is bug-free
  • A trivial program can be defined as one that contains no bugs.
