Plus a one day bill credit does not equal one day of data credit depending on the plan.

It is basically giving MS Windows favoritism and some made that clear the last time they gave a break for a Windows update.

So a break whenever there is an iOS, Android, Linux update? It is what Bonus time is for. Can't believe a lot of people aren't up at 6 Am getting ready for work and can't start a download.

Also, the size of the total update process can vary.  Mine was 3.7GB, but that doesn't mean everyone else had the same.

My Linux Mint 17.3 updated yesterday to the tune of 85 MB
It was well within my plan limits so no give-aways needed here.

Gwalk the smartie pants. Mint is sweet, most likely my next primary OS, sure won't be Windows 10.

In fact think I'll dual boot into it now and get updates. Thanks for the reminder.

Re: Big Windows 10 Update August 2

Oh, come on now.  Windows 10 is the greatest, best, most wonderful OS ever created!  It can do....well....lots of things, and they are all super duper great!  I mean...Cortana!  And some super great "Connect" thing.  I don't know what it is, but it's super great. 

Back to reality.  I like Mint, as well.  It works well, does what it's supposed to, it's easy to update what you want and when you want, and it's truly free, not free with an asterisk.  Plus, it's real easy on the resources.  It doesn't take much to run Mint.  There are all kinds of programs for it, as well, and again, free.  Heck, it looks good, too. Smiley Happy

I wish I had $40-60K laying around... I would have fiber optic internet... 1 mile, just 1 mile away from fiber!
