Apple's updater updates all copies it finds, which you dislike.

I "dislike" ? Odd that I never used the word...

Where did you get the idea that Apple updates ALL copies it finds? That's wrong, and has never been the case. Else all my clones would have been updated for the past decade at least! Way off the mark...

Office AutoUpdater also never even looks at the clones, only the Startup HD... It maybe did back in 2004 or earlier, but that's not relevant now, in 2011... I'm thinking you've slipped a cog here steven...

My only complaint is with the App Store Updates of 3rd party Apps, at the moment an inconsequential solitaire game, but it's happened with others unless I update the clones..

I reject the need to eject the clones, never been an issue, and maybe I just like to see them there...
