Fedora had never been usable on really low bandwidth from its first day
on - Telling otherwise is simply not true.

The only option to use Fedora with such kind of low bandwidth systems is
to disable automated updates, PackageKit etc. and to resort to manual
yum updates, being run when such system has access to high bandwidth,
rsp. costs and/or time allow.

Finally, it's not the number of updates which render using Fedora on
such systems tedious, it's the "big packages", e.g. the kernel,
openoffice or even worse some of these 100MB-large game data files.

Or we could just make Fedora print money.
