First they disable the ability to defer updates... Then they enable it again as a selling point?

Raspberry PI 2 owners “now have full support for the TX/RX pins”

Who would just install a virus on the Pi? Just install Linux and the virus will be gone.

Sigh...enable forced updates and it's "Windows doesn't give us control," disable forced updates (to align with the other OSes on the market) and it's "Microsoft is letting security issues fester!"

The question I have is what is the right strategy for a security-conscious OS? Should all trust be placed in the user, even when the user is grandma? Should all trust be placed in a giant megacorp? Should all trust be placed in an OEM?
