Comment 119 for bug 332945

I think most has been said already but I could I add one more thing?

If you have unstable internet (or are traveling), you might not want to update immediately. So I think the notifier icon is important to remind people that there are updates they haven't downloaded yet. Similar with the new notifications: I just had an expected notification about my new wireless network but unfortunately, I just got myself a new cup of tea while it popped up, so it's gone forever! :=)

Anyway, maybe there should be an easier way to get the update icon back for those who want it back (e.g. put a checkbox in the "software sources" "updates" tab).
