Not much functionality for people who - like me - are used to the ‘apt-get update’ and ‘apt-get upgrade’ command lines, but surely an eye-catcher for those who watch - especially the Debian version with its rotating swirl. This is nice if you want to promote or advocate Debian, or if you come home and log in and instantly see that this day your better half did no update/upgrade.
