re: What are your thoughts on 'Silent Installations'? VIEW POST


all I could think about was keyloggers, spyware, and other things that could show up installed on my computer unannounced. Hard pass.

This was my first thought when I saw the post title.

As someone who generally falls in the "superuser" camp I might be skewed here, but I prefer being told when something is going to update. For me, updates are exciting and I love to see what's changing!


With updates do you ever skip versions or delay? Or do you just want the heads up to read the release notes/changelog? I've skipped or temporarily delayed if its part of my current workflow and I don't want those extra variables.


Same as you! I'll put off an update for a bit if it would cause disturbance, or only adds a feature I don't plan to use.
