    The ''security updates'' are set to auto update.
    I usually install the ''recommended updates'' when they are released.Today I saw a distribution update via update manager for Skype.Is it always better to install the distribution updates as soon as possible or is it better to not touch a program if it is working properly.

    Do install the Skype, its an improved version, the camera now works without ld_preload command and its a pleasure to see it back in Ubuntu repos.
