Re: proposal - Debian laptop package/distribution

The gain from the mobile update daemon is rather small.  However a nice thing i
have recently discovered is that mounting a disc w/ 'noatime' as an option
decreases disc spin ups because the disc is no longer written to on every file
access.  Who uses atime on a laptop anyway.

Besides, replaces in updated in debian will be a serious pain.  And the gain is
maybe 2 - 5 minutes.  Not worth it when there are bigger fish to fry.
