I have a question that I cannot find a sufficient answer to anywhere. Why did apple change the way Software Update works? I cannot understand such a boneheaded move for the life of me. Before updating to 10.5 I could run the updates automatically or manually, but in either case it INSTALLED the update in the background allowing me to work. When it was finished and time for me to restart (if applicable) I could restart the machine and be back up and running in less than 90 seconds. Not anymore! Now I have to click restart and watch all my apps shut down while the oh so special Software Update progress window tell me that its updating. W.......T........F!!!!!! Why? I mean why must I lose productivity to the SW? What was so damn wrong about downloading a PKG in the background quietly and installing only alerting me when it was time to restart? IF this isn't characteristic of Windows, I dont know what is. I don't know if the apple boards will accept a post about it, but damn sure will send feedback about it!!! Has anyone else been annoyed by this new S.U. behavior?
