Yes, updates come out practically every day.  So?  Microsoft sends out 
updates to its desktops practically every day also.

I turned off auto updates on my Fedora notebook and tend to do them 
Monday mornings to start the new week 'up to date'.  I have NOT turned 
off auto updates on the Win7 systems here, as otherwise I might just 
forget as I use them too infrequently myself.

Tracer is an interesting tool to see, after an update, what you have to 
restart.  Sometimes just an app or a logout and back in. Sometimes a reboot.
