My own personal experience?

With Windows, pray there's already a fix, and if so, go ahead and install it. Otherwise, you're SOL and whatever you're seeing could very well never get fixed and there's nothing you can do about it. So move on and find another way to accomplish whatever you're trying to do.

With Linux, you're never out of options for things you can try to fix some problem yourself--everything's open. The solution just depends on how much time you're willing to invest, and you could very well get to a point where you'll have to explain to Linus Torvalds why his code is wrong and he should use your fix. It's a double-edged sword.

[TL;DR]:

Windows: It's Microsoft's problem, wait for them to fix it.
Linux: You can make it your problem.
