Today Presto was very kind to me (is not about absolute values but about percentage):

Size of all updates downloaded from Presto-enabled repositories: 2.6M
Size of updates that would have been downloaded if Presto wasn't enabled: 44M
This is a savings of 95 percent

Yeah, a nice cold beer (or any other beverage) is well deserved by the guys who worked hard on this.


  1. i am so excited about presto. i hit 85% savings last night and i was seriously happy :)

  2. The future :)

    Our connections are faster, yet our software updates are smaller (and our compression better)

    Our computers are faster, yet (on Linux at least) the code is faster too.
