f7. Luckily I have a broadband connection. One of the reasons I am so
happy with linux is that people are working so hard, at practically no
cost to me, on making the OS the best they can. Of course I also took
into consideration that f8 is already downloadable, so I assumed f7 is
in its final stages and thus the reason for so many updates. However
after using for 3 weeks I think I have already had over 20 additional
updates. Just more hard work being completed. So the downloads of the
distributions are probably being updated somewhat regularly to try and
help keep it down, mine was somewhere around 150 updates right after
install.


It turned out to be 197 updates. I'm now on my second laptop. Only 1 workstation left running XP. I run Adobe Creative Suite on this machine. One day I will try it on a virtual machine.
