One of the reasons why I stick with Fedora

The delta rpm feature of yum reduces the amount of data download for updates.
Total download size: 97 M
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Downloading Packages:
Setting up and reading Presto delta metadata
updates/prestodelta | 889 kB 00:24
Processing delta metadata
Download delta size: 4.3 M
Finishing rebuild of rpms, from deltarpms
<locally rebuilding deltarpms> | 95 MB 00:37
Presto reduced the update size by 96% (from 95 M to 4.3 M).
