Why are people freaked by this?
Authored by: Mattbot on May 24, '07 05:39:25PM

When managing a large number of Macs, using disk imaging tools or tools like Radmind is nearly mandatory. These tools will reset the client Macs to the state of the server image whenever they are run (nightly in our case), deleting any newly downloaded software such as Dashboard widget updates.

Being able to shut this feature off keeps every Mac on our network from downloading the same updates every day. And it keeps our install base stable so we can depend on it for production.
