I like the fact that Apple makes the updates available on a timely basis and the fact that I can ignore the updates I don't want. I still remember when you had to go to the computer store to get updates on floppies. Back then, you could get the entire OS on a floppy. Good times.
You can ignore the updates you want?
I don't ever recall seing that option in the Apple Updater application I used. I like the option on Windows Update alot. I have a server that craps out on a certain security update and I don't ever want it to install (and it auto installed itself 3 times in a 1 week period and every time it jacked everything up) so being able to hide updates is extremely useful.
