Which is why we release every couple of weeks a new Tor Browser and use
the Tor Browser updater to keep the necessary user interaction at a
minimum. Integration of Tor Browser into the operating system (whatever
that exactly means) is orthogonal to having automatic security updates.
(This does not say anything about that integration being worthwhile or
not, though.)
