Allow to set system defaults


#1

It would be great to be able to set a bunch of preferences as default for all users on a machine. Individual users cson files could override these settings.

One key I would like to particularly change is: “automaticallyUpdate”. In my environment most users are not admin, they are therefore not able to update Atom without admin interference. We have a software distribution system in place that takes care of updates, but that is lagging (by intent) behind the Atom update checker.

To be clear: I’m not asking to change the Atom defaults as defined in app.asar. I just would like to have a second layer of preferences that can be set on a system level.
