Look at it this way:
Had Microsoft known about the potential problems/bugs/security issues/or whatever it is that they are patching when Win 7 was released, those updates would already
be on your computer. When you were first installing Windows did you tell yourself "8.5GB is one thing, but the heck if I'm going to install an OS that requires 8.9GB"?
I saw a 1TB HD at the store today for $59.95 - why worry about a few hundred Megabytes of updates?
