Let's see, I have to make a 10GB download this time?

No. Not at all. It's just a 4.3GB DVD image. Even if you are on a modem connection, that's only about 11 to 13 days. By then there will only be about a half a gig of updates out. With the new delta-rpms you can go through those less than a day and a half.

Of course, if you pay by the MB, you want to be careful. Fedora's price tag on my netbook with mobile broadband comes in at about $300 with the initial updates.
