@jk this is a great side effect if running our own Linux distro and not having enough volunteers: very little updates :D (the only thing that auto updates in my machine is Firefox, due to security reasons). anything else I leave as is unless I need something new. I ran the same kernel for over 5 years.
@jk supposedly yes — I don't recommend it for running a server, obviously. but for a user machine the attack vector is essentially the browser. plus, using a crazy non-standard distro like #GoboLinux means the script-kiddie stuff probably doesn't even work out of the box (granted, that latter point is sort of security by obscurity)
@zash often because the world around it keeps changing!
