Re: Why oh why so many updates? Why I "like" Ubuntu

Yeah I have a thinkpad with both Mint and Windows Vista and have had it 3 years or so. Not only does the Windows partition run hot and slow with continual massive and annoying updates it is chewing up 25G for a minimal install. I only keep it for when I have to use the laptop for a presentation because the video drivers are better. The Mint partition updates a lot but rather quickly and unobtrusively. It runs much cooler and much faster and only chews up about 5G.

Windows is slowly dying.
