I run Debian Unstable, which has new goodies coming out on a weekly basis. 
The last time I checked for updates, there were over 500 packages I had 
installed for which updates were available. It only took a command like the 
above to upgrade them all.

How many .msi files would you have to click on to achieve the Windows 
equivalent?
