Are you basing this assumption on somethign really experienced?
It is even documented on debian-devel:
Indeed, when I run an "apt<whatever> dist-upgrade", I just launch the
command, look at the list of actions that are planned, hit "Y" to
confirm and just switch to another window and come back some hours
Well, I have more than one window on my desktop and sometimes look at
the process that continuosely spits out lines I never realised before ...
In short, I don't really care to read what's happening or displayed on
I'd regard this as a grand fathers phenomenon: Beeing unable to
concentrate on more than one thing. ;-))))
Do you think that real users will worry about mysterious actions
happening after package installs?
Honestly, I think so. Especially new users who are not yet comfortable
with the fact that in Debian most things went very smoothly and you
do not need to observe continuosely.
