Upgrading is never that simple on a production box. You first have
to create the same environment (pre upgrade) on a test server, then
do your upgrades to that, test the whole mess and ensure nothing
was broken by the upgrade, and finally:

apt-get dist-upgrade

Given that most of the time is taken in setting up and testing the
upgrade, I don't see why it is that much harder to keep a BSD box
up to date (Robin's words, not Craig's).
