I had to load a new FC6 on my laptop and when I brought it up the Package Updater told me there was 277 Updates! I see they are many of them just replacement RPM's of the whole thing. I used to hate Windows

At least with Linux, the updates replace the broken stuff on your
machine, and you don't need to hang onto to the update packages.  ;-)

I've watched Windows fill up the drive with downloaded patches that you
must keep on the drive, and it applies some patches on top of what it's
doing each run-time (booting gets slower and slower).

Yes the HUGE advantage of Linux over Windows is the file system and the update system. RPM files are great and you never defragment a Linux file system. My wife still likes Windows because she likes the solatare game.
