Re: They're not asking the right question.

"99% of customers could care less about a faster speed if a slower one is available."

*GASP* Blasphemy! You mean to tell me that the average user does not need that 1Gb connection with unlimited transfers of those rare Linux ISOs for only $19.95 per month? That can't be true! Every DSLR reader knows that slower speed tiers are unacceptable. There is no way my grandmother can survive on that pitiful 3Mb connection.

I don't due Linux but have you seen the full service pack sizes for XPS3 and Vista SP2 and Windows 7 patches? And Exchange and those install ISOs are a bugger.

Yes I could keep them locally and yes Microsoft download center is throttled but there are time I download an ISO at home on cable instead of in the office on the WAN.

But, I'm not an average user - i fix 10-15 computers a month at home so my patch needs are different. Yes I could run WSUS but its easier to let it hit Windows update.
