I just installed VL 6.0 Light, I think this is a really nice distro.
I am coming from Ubuntu, so you'll know where my head is at in this question.
How will I know that there are updates for the various applications installed in VL? In Ubuntu, a message comes over the internet to my computer that starts an update manager that notifies me that there are updates available that I should consider installing. Does VL work the same way, or do I need to be looking - where? - for when updates are available?
