How often in the past with other devices like Windows Mobile and Android have you flashed a ROM or just performed an update and then had the pain of setting everything up again? I know you can create a cab backup etc but now Zune also puts your phone's apps and settings back to how it was before the update. So even though you will have a nice new update under the bonnet all your apps and setting will be as you had them previously so no need to have the hassle or remembering what app you had and what setting you need for this and that, Zune does it all for you.
Interestingly if there is a problem or even if the update process has a problem you can roll back to the previous version you had running.
How's that for making a stress free and easy update life?
