Comment 205 for bug 332945

I think it's amazing that almost every single post on on this bug
doesn't want this new method, and thats just the people who
have taken the time to find/write a bug report
and yet what the users wanted is as good as ignored

pop up/under box's are evil
if a window pops up with out there been a reason for it
e.g i've just clicked a dialog
I assume its an pop under/over from a webpage and it gets closed before its even loaded

a simple notification bubble been shown every x min is more then enough
to notify a user to update with out intruding on the users desktop

I also use ubuntu for a digital photo/media frame i built
so having a dialog pop up is going to ruin a fantastic photo frame
