One thing that RedHat does now is quite a useful feature for the newbie,
or for anyone actually. The rhn-applet that is installed by default
provides a visual cue when you have packages that need to be updated.
It's especially nice in those time periods (like during the last week
or two) when a number of bugs or exploits come out every few days - if
you're not subscribed to linux at u or one of the SANS newsletters you
might not be aware of it.
Do other distros have something similar?
