Comment 273 for bug 332945

I was initially opposed to this change as a default, but having spoken to a friend who upgraded to Jaunty just after the release I am much happier about the idea of testing it on 'the masses'.
My friend, who is quite technical (works in the IT department in a school), said he preferred the new system because before he would just ignore the orange icon (even though he knew what it meant).

Is there a reliable way to meter how people respond to updates, compared to how they did in 8.10, so we can know with reasonable certainty that the new system gets more people upgrading?
