My "few facts" comes from almost a decade providing support to
*normal* users that do not look at blogs, mailing lists, wikis... and
just install an update when they find it. But that is my personal
experience, it could be subjective...

BTW, according to WordNet "opinionated" means "narrow minded" which I
think is a little too much, don't you think? After all, I commented on
this topic only once...
