After 1 hour my download is at 11% - but I am working from a VMware virtual partition.
I see the update in the store but I am in no hurry to install it. My Windows 8 laptop and netbook are running fine without it so I'll wait for the dust to settle before I consider installing it. I have the run the preview as well as RTM in a VM and haven't seen anything in 8.1 that makes me in a hurry to do the upgrade.
I KNEW I shouldn't have updated. My perfectly running vanilla 8 is now a unstable freeze fest. This has not been an enjoyable experience tonight. And to top it off my Media centre key knocked out my activation. I'm looking at a bloody fresh install on my desktop after all
My laptop however seems to be free of any issues...
