    Hey, any comments about this post: http://mjg59.livejournal.com/77440.html

    Says:

    Conclusion:

    Automatix exists to satisfy a genuine need, and further work should be
    carried out to determine whether these user requirements can be
    satisfied within the distribution as a whole. However, in its current
    form Automatix is actively dangerous to systems - ranging from damage
    to small items of user configuration, through removing user-installed
    packages without adequate prompting or warning and up to the (small
    but existing) potential to leave a system in an unbootable state.

    When there are polls specifically that have to do with software things can change so quickly they should have a expiration date on the poll to make them relevant.

    Changes can happen especially when in comes to stability, thus making the resulting poll misleading.
    You have a great point, RAV TUX. I'm closing this thread.

    The new poll can be found here.
