Chapter 8. System Preferences > Software Update

8.22. Software Update

Few operating-system ideas are simpler or better than this one: Whenever Apple improves or fixes one of the innumerable software pieces that make up Mac OS X, the Software Update program can notify you, download the update, and install it into your System automatically.

Software Update doesn't run rampant through your system software, however; it's quietly respectful. For example, in the beginning, you must manually click the Update Now button when you want the program to dial the Internet for updates. Furthermore, Software Update doesn't actually download the new software without asking your permission first and explicitly telling you what it plans to install, as shown in Figure 8-12.
