The dangers of automatic updates

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 127.0.0.1] on September 14, 2007 11:00 PM
I'd have to agree with lack of information on updates being a problem. I had an unstable system on Fedora 6 and it never seemed to get better, not matter what updates I applied. I was really irritated with the lack of information on updates. I don't know if I will go back to Fedora after that experience. Unless your someone who just wants to spend their extra time in working on a system or checking out the latest and greatest why subject yourself to the instability of constant updates.
