The dangers of automatic updates

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 86.136.61.161] on September 15, 2007 11:35 AM
I autoupdate my Debian Testing and thus far I have had problems (Nvidia binary and Xorg fell out, thats what you get when you use closed source) but the benifits have been worth it in my opinion.

But there is also Debian stable for those who don't want the risk of updates. Something for everyone.
