|I think it's a cool tool though I don't know why the patch between 4.1 and 4.2rc is a little over 38mb. |
That can't be right. Anyway, I can understand it with dial up and/or something like Mepis -- you're filling up a full CD or DVD, so it's at least 700MB with each download. With 50MB, it should be much less of an issue. Especially if you're talking about 20-25% difference each release in download time (even at dial-up speeds) if that diff is right (can't be!). And if that *is* right, and since you'd have to obtain the first ISO, you're talking about saving net 12% download time on the first patch (88/100MB), 17% net (124/150MB) the second patch, 23% net the third, etc. It would take a lot of new releases to make it worth all the hassle, imo.
