Why are there so many updates

Hello there,

I switched from Kali/Debian a little over a month ago and I have noticed that arch Linux has an update for something everyday. I am not necessarily worried I am just curious since Kali Linux had an update like once a month. Also I would like to ask if it is wise to update as     soon as the update is released. I watched a arch Linux update guide that advised to hold the Linux kernel updates until it has been reviewed.

That's the nature of rolling release. If you don't want updates right away, you picked the wrong distro.

Oh no, I really love the updates. It is just that I am not used to it and wanted to know why is it so quick. Thankyou for your reply

Upstream releases software, Arch packages it. Simple as that.

Hmm.. I believe my question is answered. Do you think I should close this topic?

Re: Why are there so many updates

The definitive answer is that people will carp if updates don't happen instantly. tongue

And, with that, I will close the thread.  Let the moderators know if you wish it reopened using the report link.
