It's just an update, nothing special. Why should this be called FUD?

I installed it on my Intel Macs, all went fine. The PowerPC Macs also had a security update without bumping the OS version number.

The original comment to this thread by 3rdalbum made the statement that a bug in OS X could cause a printer to catch fire, when that is simply NOT true. To suggest that that could actually happen is an example of FUD.

It sounded like a joke to me - quite funny, btw.
Edited: sorry, cannot fully understand the comment system yet, quotes in particular. Maybe I should just learn to read.

It's called humor. You should try it some time. But I know... As an Apple fanboy, you probably call it religious blasphemy instead of humor.

The whole point of his post was that the OS had matured and that embarrassing security issues were becoming less common. The final "not to say" that mentioned fire was clearly intended for levity not hyperbole.

I find your comment more in the FUDish tradition than his. You completely abandoned the context.
