OT, but since nobody has anything on-topic to say....

Have you ever wondered what the ratio is for

initial code installed
----------------------
security fixes installed

especially when you extend this beyond the OS to Office, iTunes, Firefox, etc etc.

This one at 30MB was pretty big, but on the same day, I also updated Firefox and both iTunes and Safari wanted to install updates. Well over 50MB total. Seems like an average week.

ergophobe - High speed connections make this a simple process but you're right. Maintenance on software is a pretty big job. I'm surprised there isn't more consistency in the market. For example, why do I need to have all these programs running in background checking for updates? It's an inefficent process.

>>why do I need to have all these programs running in background checking for updates?

That bugs me too. I prefer in most cases to have the app check or not check, depending on my settings, on startup.

I mean application startup, not every time I boot the machine.
