Apple Moves Towards Faster Updates

Curious note in the latest Apple Mountain Lion update:

– Daily Checks for required security updates
– The ability to install required security updates automatically or after restarting your Mac
– A more security connection to Apple’s update servers.

Clearly the trend to more rapid updates for client side software is accelerating. I’m not sure I like things being required though as updates sometimes cause problems. It’s only a matter of time before a prematurely released upgrade rapidly takes out an entire platform.
