Comment 120 for bug 332945

I switched my 71 year old mother to Ubuntu about a year ago. After setting it up so that she could easily find the applications she needed I told her one thing. I told her that the little orange or red icon that appears in the top right means there are important updates and to click it when you're done working on your computer for the day. She leaves Firefox open and maximized permanently so a pop-under will go unsee by her. Also, if the pop-under were to pulse on the window list she would not notice it as well. I'm not complaining. I'm just telling you that now my mother won't update her machine since she's not even aware she has to.
