Very good analogy.
As for updates; there are quite a few that find that updates aren't necessary since there PC 'works'. Security wise, they may indeed be 'secure'. What they also seem to forget, or don't realise; is that some updates also improve performance.
Then there are those who 'believe they are secure', when in reality they aren't.
It's fine to admit that you don't use updates, but its not fine to advocate that behaviour.
This lemming however updates regularly and recommends the same. At least I know when I jump over the cliff I have a parachute.
