nope, I hate auto updates.

But then again we (cp users) are pretty much all tech savvy and will update our devices on a fairly regular basis. It was one of my main reasons for going to Linux. I am in more control.

That being said. The vast majority of users just can't be bothered to run an auto update. So when I setup someones machine. It is set to auto update after a few days after the 2nd tuesday since that seems to be the go to date that people do rollouts. It isn't perfect but it is what it is.

I usually try to set the schedule for middle of the night and hope like hell they don't have anything open.

I probably should setup a message that pops up on their machine during the day before that says something along the lines of "hey we are going to update this tonight. Save your work. Close things you want closed. No you can't stop it"
