As an open source fanatic, freemasonry has always rubbed me a little the wrong way
Would you like him better if he was an OpenMason?
plans to build a toilet that's better suited to developing countries
toilet starter edition...
What if I don't drink coke, I don't use windows, and I don't buy prada? Is that suspicious too?
"Note that this feature does not prevent you from using yum and other commandline tools to install updates whenever you want to. We also differentiate updates of 'OS components' (which we want to do in this offline fashion) from application updates and installations, which should still be possible from the UI without restarting the system. The differentiation between 'OS components' and applications is necessarily a heuristic, since Fedora only knows about packages. The initial heuristic is that a package is considered an application if it installs a desktop file that is shown in the menus. This is not perfect and can be refined when additional metadata becomes available. Also note that this feature is about implementing offline updates for GNOME. Other spins are not affected, although they could choose to use the same systemd and PackageKit infrastructure, and provide a similar experience. "
So we will still be able to do "yum update", and packagekit will remain behaving "normally" on the KDE Spin (at least for a while). So if it's just an option for GNOME users, it doesn't seem to be a big deal.
What is scary is the logic behind these changes, which seems to be: "Windows and OSX have nice screens to update and reboot so we must reboot too"
