I'll eventually check it out in F11 I guess (not certain). For now, F10
is out, at work and at home.  I had a few annoyances that I was
thinking to perhaps spend time with, but that stealth update was the
last drop.  Heck, I even have the Windows game machine at home installed
w/o its TCP stack so that no network unknowns would be going on.  A bit
drastic, I agree, but now, A Linux machine doing the same and without
asking before the first time ?  No thank you.

I gets tolerated here and then what, propagate as a 'good idea' to other
distros ?
