Linux Mint will inform users about important security updates but not enforce them

In an effort to improve security, Linux Mint has announced that it will inform users about important security updates - but not enforce them. Do you think Mint has made the right call?

Last month, the Linux Mint team announced that it wanted to do something about systems not being upgraded to newer versions. Systems that were not supported anymore were vulnerable to attacks, and the same was true for systems that had not the latest security updates installed.

This week, the team announced that it found a solution to the problem. Good news is, that it does not involve enforcing updates on user systems. Instead, the team created a notification system for updates that informs users about them.
