Is it like an expansion pack for the OS? What about those poor souls with limited hdd capacity?

I really have no idea why the firmware update is so huge... it barely seems to have changed anything. ^.^;

I figured it was meant to speed up the loading times and stop the console from freezing up, as some (including mine) are prone to do. Did it accomplish this, or is it too soon to tell?

It definitely hasn't made the loading any faster...
I didn't have any freezes/crashes before the patch though, so I have no idea if that's changed anything.

I wish they would put out an actual changelog instead of this garbage every time:

Version 2.1.0 U

Released: December 4, 2012

Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.

I suspect that parts of the new patch replace parts of the old patch, so it doesn't take up a whole 'nother 600 MB of space.
