I completely understand that not comprehending all of the complexities
of bandwidth/processor considerations doesn't make one stupid. I agree
wholeheartedly with you. However, you are going off on a tangent again
that really has nothing to do with the point I was trying to make.
I would really like to know how you can equate that with my original
point: "Hey, maybe instead of throwing Presto under the bus we could
discuss the option of giving users the choice to determine how much
bandwidth/processor resources to throw at system updates instead." At
least then we wouldn't be throwing out something that significantly
benefits those who DO pay a lot of money and DO have low bandwidth
connections to the Internet.
It's a simple compromise: keep things configured as efficiently as
possible while still allowing those who want to open up the throttle to
do just that.
