no not like windows you can download all of them with no worries.
I made the switch to a MAC by purchasing a MAC Mini for my car, it's running 10.4.7. I'm playing around on it and ran the software update, it came back with 14 needed/optional updates.
My question is should I install all the updates or are there any I should avoid?
Cant code cause I dont know how, but give me the paint bucket and my eraser and have at you!
...and like and unlike windows, you cannot reverse them. once you apply, you have them for good.
usually the word is to wait a few weeks in production mode...and when there are no complaints about the patch, then apply.
I wouldn't worry about the last patch. It won't kill your mac. I'm part of a six person shop that manages over 2000 macs that run osx and we haven't had any problems with it.
Failure is not an option....
It's installed by default on every version of Windows.
