A radio button on Flash tells Flash whether to
1) Download updates fully automatic
2) Force you to wade through Adobe's Website
3) Just forgettabout it, and let malware have its way.
I hate 1). Too many times a destructive release of software damages the configuration of my computer. Come to think of it, I'm dealing with that right now awaiting updates.
I hate 2). C'mon, I just want to control WHEN the upgrade occurs. Would you like to interfere with a Windows update? No? Then GIVE ME AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT that now is a good time to upgrade.
I despise 3). Flash is riddled with vulnerabilities, as attested by the constant update notifications I get under 2).
Adobe: give us the right option: let the user decide WHEN to download updates. Don't force the user to rummage through your horrific website to find the update.
