Comment 254 for bug 332945

I find it quite novel that the page Paul references[1] has this quote:

"Quick and easy updates

The task bar contains an update area where we'll notify you when there are updates available for your system, from simple security fixes to a complete version upgrade. The update facility enables you to keep your system up-to-date with just a few clicks of your mouse. "

Yet, Matthew has described the previous method as[2]:

> (2) Using a notification icon to advertise updates
> is a bad idea first because it's not obvious, and second because it
> makes installing the updates gratuitously difficult.

The two statements, presumably both from Canonical (correct me if I'm wrong), seem to be in direct conflict with each other. From personal experience I tend to favor the information currently found on the site Paul references[1].
