Hi,

Don't know if you guys have been getting a good handful of software updates just within the matter of few days. Just remember a software update for "Lion Recovery" yesterday and come today, another new update is to be installed?

Too many updates within the span of the last few dates. Running Lion, anybody else having more than the norm?

After 10.7.2 all I got was an iPhoto update on the Mac.
After iOS5 I got a few but most Dev's will take advantage and update.
What updates are you getting out of the norm.

Ah, it's the frequency at which the updates happened over the last few days. Annoying as each one required a needed restart.
Got the iPhoto update myself.....

But in order for all these things to work as advertised some things have to be upgraded and I am glad they offer it as fast as they do so don't worry after everything is on the same page it will be awhile before you see updates or at least till the next big thing.

Install them all at once and then you'll only have to restart once. ;)

Relatively speaking, you don't see as many updates to OS X as you do Windows or Linux. This can be a good or bad thing depending how you look at though.

Windows 7 is okay - far better than XP. Your only option might be Linux.

Yeah, I reckon Linuxs and Unixs are way more flexible than your average Windows and OS, if one wants to do something more advance.
Ubuntu was good fun I remember from my hazy memory..
