45-526 mb.
Before I read your size confirmation post, I assumed each patch weighting about 1Mb. As there are 472, according to the XLS list on Microsoft site, hey, my personal guesstimate of 472Mb was in a good range
It actually only ended up being 50.5 mb on mine.

Something new for audio/video editing? DVD authoring? I mean, come on. Movie Maker is worse than in Vista and DVD Maker is so shallow.
you have a good point, Microsoft should think of that, even the new movie maker that is installed with aint that much an eye catcher! hope they do extreme make overs in the next windows.

If it contains all updates why would they be releasing it? in the end it will be the same size the updates are, so instead of saying: OMG I have 100 update that are 500MB, people will say instead: It's a good thing only one update cuz it's a huge one 500MB!!!
correct me if i'm wrong

Think of it this way. What happens if God forbid, in 6 months time your windows goes completely under, and you have to reinstall? Well if you have SP1 Slipstreamed into your Windows disk, or SP1 saved somewhere, you don't need to download it, or any of the updates up to SP1, you can just install it, and your good to go.

Even if it's not slipstreamed, it would be beneficial to have all them rolled up into one.

My gripe has long been the fact that no new features for the average user are included.
