Absolutely true. There are lots of updates for Linux boxes...I can attest to that. Of course, some are security related, while others are simply additions, fixes, documentation updates, new versions, etc....so it sometimes muddies the water when you evaluate them based on a sheer # perspective.
Yeah, the latest version of Linux Mint 9 is based upon Ubuntu 10.04. Yet a fresh install still needs 219 updates. It was released May 18.
