neighborlee: Too bad you have that point of view on Mint, but I think it's very unfair. Mint is not a half-baked copycat of ubuntu, and does not even aim to be so either. Mint is based on Ubuntu, and improves it's flaws. Mint has flaws too.
Anyway, if Windows converts is an arguement, un-updated linux is far superior to Windows in security anyway. Not a valid arguement.
Automated updates in linux is not the same as automated updates in windows. I can see the benefits of Update-manager, but I'm not using every single piece of software on my linux-box. Thunderbird has asked for updates now and then, I'we never ever in my life even tried Thunderbird, and when I still used automatic updates, it nagged me every time.
Now, I use synaptic to update those pieces of software I'm actually using.
And when was it your 'right' to have automatic updates?
Again, it's as simple as
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install update-manager
, yet, people are complaining... *sigh*
neighborlee: I read the link you posted. The guy writes good, have you read the other things he has written? He glorifies Linux in public use in a other article he wrote. :3
