This is a Linux-distro specific problem - it is not true
for all distros.
In Puppy Linux you just ask on the Forum and someone will
whip up a .PET which autoloads the updated app.
I am guessing that is true for other distros as well.
Perhaps the Linux community needs to agitate for a
shorter response time to new releases of critical apps?
