Comment 196 for bug 332945

I run many Ubuntu stations in a production environment and my users are heavily limited in what they can and can't do. Machines sign on automatically and users are NOT given the password for the account. All updates are done via script or manually via SSH from IT.

Now with this version I am either going to have to hack around a poorly thought out update or put up with a million questions from users about why update manager keeps opening up and the users can't do anything with it other than close it.

How we are NOTIFIED of updates is really irrelevant and most people probably won't care one way or another. But opening update manager or any other program automatically is not a notification. It is the beginning of the update process itself.

Notification should be DISTINCTLY different than the actual update process. It should be noticeable but not obnoxious.
