I wish Windows would do this

Getting a Windows install updated after installing the latest copy from CD takes a long time and usually requires 3-5 reboots. With Fedora it's a lot easier and faster and now they've even streamlined that.

Microsoft needs to spend some of their billions on building better pach/update management into Windows.

One thing they do right though that I wish Fedora would do is classifying updates and not having updates install by default unless they fix a security hole or major stability issue.

This is my free tip for Bill Gates; Create a separate drivers CD, include a default one with the retails Windows package, but have one that is continuously updated on your website. That way, enterprises can always download your latest drivers cdrom and not have to worry about support for RAID, graphics, network, etc. drivers that were released shortly after 2003.

True "enterprises" slipstream updates into their custom installer, or image PCs from a master that is updated by hand.

Slipstreaming is not enough for you?
