This change is absolutely idiotic, despite all the rationalizing I've seen here. The proof is in the actual use cases.

Everyone I know who has upgraded thought they broke something, because they were no longer getting update notifications, since the OSD notifications happened when they were AFK, and were not persistent. My parents and grandparents (who I've gotten quite well-trained at doing their updates, and cause me virtually no support hassles since I switched them to Ubuntu) haven't done updates in weeks because they didn't know there was any.

Change it back. Flat out. This is horrible. It doesn't work for the users at all, from low end to high end. People aren't updating their systems. Any usability testing with real users would've told you this. It simply doesn't work the way you think it should.
